Rob is excited about his two-day ski trip with Jerry, while Laura says she doesn't mind his going without her. Though true, Rob eventually learns that Laura (thanks to a bad dream) is dreading that Rob - who has never skied before - will try and compete with expert skier Jerry and, in the process, break a bone. Her fears worsen when Rob and Jerry are late returning from their trip. As Laura and Millie wait together, Rob and Jerry are in a hospital getting medical attention for injuries sustained in a four person/one goat on-slope collision. Though Rob feels like his entire body is "sprained," when he gets home, he does whatever he can to hide his injuries from Laura so he won't have to endure a bunch of I-told-you-so's if she knows the truth.
