  • Episode Description
  • Upon returning from a wedding for one of Mary's friends (who is 19), various circumstances test the faith Dr. and Mrs. Stone have in Mary and the confidence in how they raised her. Dr. and Mrs. Stone spend the episode both fearing the worse and wondering how to find out what is going on with their 18 year old daughter, while still showing the respect she earned and deserves. After all each event taken by itself means nothing, but when viewed together they're enough to cause the heart of any well adjusted and responsible parent to skip more than a few beats. Tune in and see how they handle their own growing pains as the parents of an young, sensible, responsible, and levelheaded adult woman.moreless
