Grace has an imaginary and invisible-to-the-rest-of-the-world friend named Imogene. Both Maxwell and Fran are increasingly concerned about "Imogene". Maxwell thinks Grace should increase her visits to the therapist, Dr. Voort, whereas Fran thinks she should decrease her visits and replace that time with some fun activity. They decide to take Fran's course of action. All is going well with Grace until Fran accidentally eats Imogene in front of Grace. Grace is further traumatized. As they are unable to contact Dr. Voort, Maxwell and Fran don't know what to do to comfort Grace. Fran decides the appropriate thing to do is to hold a funeral for Imogene. After the funeral, Maxwell and Fran have a chance to talk to Dr. Voort. Dr. Voort's diagnosis of the situation surprises Fran. True to Dr. Voort's diagnosis, Grace admits really what happened to Imogene. Meanwhile, Maggie is taking piano lessons. Everyone in the house and within earshot wishes she didn't. Written by Huggo

Fran Fine: Oh, I just love playing with dolls!
Grace Sheffield: We aren't playing!
Fran Fine: No?
Grace Sheffield: We're in group therapy.
Fran Fine: Ohhhhhh. Thank God, because, you know, I heard Ken and Barbie are on the skids.
Grace Sheffield: Really?
Fran Fine: I heard it directly from Chatty Cathy. It seems that Ken found out that Barbie had a fling with G.I. Joe right before Desert STorm.
Grace Sheffield: Poor Ken.
Fran Fine: Poor Barbie! One little indiscretion in 30 years, and it cost her the dream house.
