Ted and Kathy Halverson have turned their basement into what he refers to as "Teen Scene," where the kids can hang out and play games. To respect the kids' privacy, they have installed what they call a Parent Bell, where they ring it and shout "parent on deck" whenever they enter. Lauren likes it because Kathy makes great snacks, listens and offers great advice. Judy says she wants to do this as well, because she wants Lauren to come to her for advice. She and Bill set up the garage as a hangout house. Once the kids are hanging out at the Millers, Ted is jealous that they're not at his place, so he installs a foosball table, a bumper pool table, a cotton candy machine and a sundae bar. In no time the kids are back. This now becomes a case of one-upmanship, as Judy decides to get a trampoline, which turns out to be a mistake. The Millers to put an end to the hangout house and let Ted have his "Teen Scene" back. Written by
