Goofs

The biography Kathy writes about Jim is full of spelling errors, which gives the family lots of laughs. However, in season 3's "The Spelling Bee" Kathy was a champion speller who could certainly spell the simple words she gets wrong here, such as governor. See more »

Father Makes A Mighty Tough Choice
14 October 2020 | by StrictlyConfidentialSee all my reviews

In "Father's Biography" - Kathy Anderson has written (as a class assignment) an unintentionally humorous biography about her dear, old dad, Jim Anderson.

A PTA presentation has been arranged at Kathy's school for her to honor her father (with what she has written) before a live audience.

With pressure from his wife, Margaret, to do otherwise - Jim Anderson must now decide whether he will be at attendance at this presentation, or not.
