Plot[edit | edit source]
Due to the doctors not allowing Lois to return home yet, Hal has to pick up a second job at a stereo store. He gets instant praise from his boss, although his co-workers aren't much to brag about anyway. The boys are upset when they get a 16 year-old baby sitter, who uses mind games to get them to do whatever she wants. A movie is being shot at the ranch, and when Francis finds out what kind he is shocked. When Gretchen gets hired to play a role, Francis tries to stop it.
