  • Alice is taking a week long vacation, she who has arranged for her efficient cousin, Emma, to take over her job during her absence. Emma is a twenty year veteran, a Master Sergeant with the Women's Army Corps. Emma ends up running the household like it is the army, the kids being army privates. She only will allow things that are up to army regulation. Carol and Mike get off only marginally better as "officers". As such, the kids, in their words, would like an "honorable discharge" from Emma's army. Mike and Carol, however, realize that is not possible due to the sensitivity of Emma being Alice's cousin. Is there any way to make their time with Emma less army and more civilian?

  • When Alice goes on vacation, Cousin Emma - a sergeant from the Women's Army Corps - fills in. She ends up driving the family crazy through her micromanagement of the household and by making them do daily calisthenics. However, the exhausted Bradys learn a lesson about being appreciated when they throw a "welcome home" party for Alice that Emma interprets as a farewell bash.

  • Alice's cousin Emma, a former master sergeant, takes Alice's place while she is away, and she subjects the Bradys to a demanding military-like routine that makes them feel like they've been drafted into the Army.
