Having a joint checking account is causing problems for Steve and Betty Jo. Betty Jo is writing checks faster than Steve is putting money into the account, which leads to the account being overdrawn. They make a deal: Betty Jo will not spend any more money for a month. What Betty Jo doesn't tell Steve when she accepts the agreement is that she has already purchased an extremely long sofa for $100 from Agnew's Furniture Store. She's certain he'll love it once he sees it. The problem ends up being that the extremely long sofa doesn't fit in their tiny living room unless a wall gets knocked down, and the sofa was a no return sale. Betty Jo and Steve run into further problems when Steve has an idea of his own for the living room, which Betty Jo misinterprets for her own wants. An exasperated Kate gets caught in the middle, she who Betty Jo co-opts to deal with a less than flexible but more than profit hungry Mr. Agnew. Written by
