Lisa helps Nancy with the morning dishes. Lisa expresses her surprise that Penny was willing to take Tommy out for a walk; she thought Penny wanted to have nothing to do with the child. Nancy replies that what Penny says shouldn't be taken too seriously. She's still having a difficult time after the death of her husband, Jeff. Grandpa Hughes comes in. When he and Nancy are alone, she wonders aloud if she'll ever feel as close to Janice as she does to Lisa. Grandpa asks about the cramped living arrangements. Why don't they move little Tommy into his bedroom? The idea sounds good to Nancy. Grandpa goes up to Lisa and Bob's room and asks her about it. She agrees, but has something more pressing on her mind. Later, she thinks back to her encounter with Bruce Elliot, who wanted to show her Paris -- as his bride. She goes to the study and calls his office but finds that he has already gone to Europe. She falls onto the couch and weeps. Later, Nancy tells Bob about the new arrangements. Bob ... Written by J.

Nancy Hughes: You know, Lisa, you didn't have to help me with the dishes this morning.
Lisa Hughes: Well, Penny usually helps you and - and as much as she's taking Tommy to the park, I thought the least I could do was to take her place out here in the kitchen.
