Nurse Bauer


Carol's college-aged boyfriend, Sandy - the butt of Mike and Ben's recent ridicule - takes her on a night on the town. This is despite Jason and Maggie saying no. During their date, Sandy and Carol stop at a bar. The next day, Ben begins pestering Carol with the family's video camera, recording Carol's nervousness at Sandy being an apparent no-show for their date. But the fun and teasing quickly ends when Carol gets a phone call informing her that Sandy is in the hospital. He was involved in a car accident on his way home from his date with Carol. Carol goes to the hospital to visit Sandy, who appears to be just a little bruised; there, he lets on that drunk driving charges are pending against him, but he feels lucky that he has gotten a second chance. Carol tells her parents, who are upset. Jason wants to teach Carol a lesson, but Maggie is just glad Carol is OK. The bad news is yet to come. When Carol gets home, Mike is waiting with some terrible news. He had just gotten a phone ... Written by Brian Rathjen <>
