After a few months of marriage, Mike and Carol are reveling in the harmony that exists within their family - in their words, "paradise" - although Alice tries to warn them that it will not always be smooth sailing. Indeed, the harmony amongst the kids starts to break down as the differences between the boys and girls start to emerge. Even Mike and Carol are having a difficult time negotiating their own problem of equitable closet space. As such, Mike issues a household directive: share and share alike. But that directive has an unintended consequence in use of what was the boys' private sanctuary: the clubhouse in the backyard. Beyond the kids, Mike and Carol also have differing opinions on what is equitable in this situation. As such, everyone looks to Alice for advice, she who vows to stay neutral, that is until she thinks she's come up with the perfect solution to the problem. Written by
