  • Dick sprains his ankle and gets used to a life of luxury - except that his ankle heals. Tommy has to sell 15 boxes of chocolate that no-one wants and Harry moves into a tree in the garden.moreless

    An interesting episode where Dick sprains his ankle trying to help Mary alter her air vent. While at home recovering, he gets used to the idea of everyone obeying his every whim - until his ankle heals. Unfortunately, he gets used to it, which is fine for him but not for everyone else.

    Tommy has to go around and sell 15 boxes of chocolate so the school band could go to Washington. All his attempts to sell any fail - which includes a hilarious double act with Harry - but then manages to do so when Sally turns up. His basketball coach is pleased, but Tommy's pleasure turns to displeasure when he hears that they won't be going to Washington for good.

    Harry meanwhile wants his own room, so he moves into a treehouse that he built, along with the gnome from the living room. Dick, who's feeling better but has annoyed everyone with his constant demands, wants to see it, but as no-one wants to take him up to it, he does it himself when everyone is out.

    Mary, Sally, Harry and Tommy catch him however, and enjoy it when he falls off the ladder to the ground, but Harry's treehouse ends up landing on him, injuring him once again.

    A very enjoyable episode, with all the characters on form. Just a shame there wasn't a storyline for Kirsten Johston, but she works well with what she gets. However, the episode belongs to John Lithgow and French Stewart, especially the great scene during the closing credits.
