  • Episode Description
  • Monty Visits: Little Bill is excited when Alice the Great tells him his friend Monty is coming over to spend the day; he brings all his favorite toys down to the living room so Monty won't have to worry about maneuvering his wheelchair upstairs. When Monty arrives, he seems to be more interested in helping Alice the Great prepare a sweet potato pie than playing any games. He tells her he wants to become a chef when he grows up, and is always helping his parents in the kitchen. Alice the Great appreciates the assistance and his company, but Bill gets angry that his great grandmother is taking away his friend; he becomes even more upset when Alice remarks that she loves Monty-- he thinks she loves Monty more than him. Alice explains that she is only being hospitable to Monty because he is a guest, and although she did say loves him as a good friend, she will never love anyone the way she loves Bill. Monty apologizes for upsetting Little Bill, and invites him to join in to make the pie. Mom's Trip: Brenda has to travel to New York City for the day to attend a work related day long seminar. Little Bill worries that he will miss her too much, and that they won't be able to do the usual things they do together, like take his bath or make dinner. Big Bill explains that Alice the Great is preparing supper, he will give Bill his bath, and that Brenda will be home the next morning. April and Bobby try to cheer their brother up by playing his favorite board game, but Little Bill frets about what to do with the piece Brenda plays with. His siblings say he can use both pieces to feel like he's playing the game with their mother, and he perks up when he wins. Brenda calls during dinner to check up on everyone, and they all tell her how much they miss her. After his bath, Little Bill joins Big Bill on the couch because neither one can sleep while waiting for Brenda to come home. They nod off sitting on the sofa, and Brenda gently wakes them up when she comes in the next morning, saying she kept her promise to be home at the appointed time.moreless
