  • Episode Description
  • Mary is going away to a new college in the fall. As part of her leaving, she is putting on a "large" outdoor formal party that will be in their backyard. At the same time, Jeff is flirting (again) with car ownership and ends up buying an "Hilldale Bus Lines" bus, which he hopes to use in various money making ventures. While Jeff was able to drive the bus home, unfortunately, it will no longer start. Tune in to see how Mary and Mrs. Stone deal with the bus, while attempting to save Mary's party.moreless

    Trivia (2)

    • Continuity Goof: While Mary and Mrs. Stone are working on Mary's hair, they are looking out a window in Mary's bedroom.  It is overlooking the front of the house, as they can see the bus Jeff owns that he parked on the street.

      In previous episodes during season 5 and earlier, at least one window faces out onto the backyard.  As the room doesn't go from the front of the house to the back, obviously, there is a continuity goof between episodes in the placement of this window.

    • With this episode, we learn Mary won't be a full time character / cast member in season 6.  She will be going away to college in the fall.
