The kids's school closes and Angelo's train doesn't ride due to excessive snow. Whle everyone cuddles up by the fire, Tony tells how he decides to seek a janitorial position so he could afford moving from cramped Brooklyn to Connecticut. Mona picks up how they met and she convinced him and later Angela that Tony as housekeeper, replacing 'Nazi nanny' Hiller, and as father-figure for Jonathan, would be ideal for both families and suit her own hunk-sighting lust.
