One of the best of season three.
7 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Lane family is in crisis. One by one, the older Lane children return home and won't leave. Then, two of the grandkids also arrive and the house is packed with goody bohemians. Jane and Trent can't take it and move in with the Morgendorffers and there are some adjustment problems. Daria feels odd being so uncomfortably close to Trent and Trent has problems following the house rules--as the Lanes' only rule concerns not making fires in any room without a fireplace! It all comes to a head when Mrs. Lane finally seeks refuge--sick of her own annoying family of moochers. Helen has a sure-fire place that will drive them off in short order.

Part of the reason I loved this episode were Jake's incredibly inane and funny comments. In particular, his comment about Marmaduke is a classic. But the writing throughout all this episode is tops. See this one.
