Chided sarcastically by all the gentlemen's gentlemen in Central Park for becoming a "nanny", Mr. French cools towards the kids in a misguided attempt to get back to his roots (he explains to Uncle Bill, "I have a different attitude towards my work", and Uncle Bill says, "The kids liked the old one better"). French refuses to help Cissy pick out a dress for her date (her new guy likes yellow, to which Buffy says, "Let him wear yellow"), he won't read bedtime stories anymore to Buffy and Jody, and, upon hearing that Miss Faversham has been let go from a neighboring brood in the building, he almost seems to ready to quit his job and have Miss Faversham replace him! Ahh, the power of peer pressure. Lots of good lines and interesting, not too contrived familial situations in this very fine episode.
