  • Episode Description
  • A non-church patron Marie enlists Eric's help in handling her elderly mother, Mrs. Wagner into getting her into a nursing home, but Eric gets a different impression when he finally meets Mrs. Wagner and sees that she doesn't need help and is still very capable. In fact, it turns out Marie may need more help than her mother as she's very unhappy with her life. But things turn out bad later on when Mrs. Wagner ends up in the emergency room due to her stress from her daughter. Ruthie puts up a fight with Lucy while shopping as she wants to spend the day with Vincent without Annie knowing about it. Ruthie wants to go to a family dinner with Vincent. Although, it inevitably blows up in her face and leads to an interesting conversation with Annie and Lucy in the driveway. Ben (guest-star Geoff Stults) shows up in Glen Oak to pay Kevin and his new family a visit and makes himself well at home again in the garage apartment. But Kevin is not happy to see his brother as he wanted his mom and husband Frank to come over and see Savannah first. Lastly, the family spends the day setting up a special family dinner of what would've been Annie's mother, Jenny, her 75th birthday.moreless

    Trivia (2)

    • Goof: When Ruthie comes running out of the pool hall how did she know Kevin & Ben were there? She came running out & ran straight to Kevin. She may be too upset to be surprised but they didn't know she was there, so they weren't expecting her.

    • Whenever Annie and the twins were baking a cake, she already put the icing on the cake. When they went back to show the cake, the icing was gone.
