Storyline

While Grandma Yetta's rest home is being fumigated, she decides to stay with Fran and the Sheffield's. Yetta has quite the influence on the kids. She also brings more than herself into the house as she is found in bed the next morning with her gentleman friend, Saul. This situation does not sit well with Maxwell, as Yetta apparently provided advice to Maggie in her new relationship with Greg, a relationship of which Maxwell does not approve. Although he learns Yetta's advice wasn't quite what he thought, Maxwell still eagerly awaits Maggie's arrival home from her latest date with Greg, while Fran consoles Maxwell about the job he's doing as the father of a dating teen-aged girl.
