  • Uncle Bill is in Peru and places a phone call home. He is expecting only Buffy and Jody to be there and finds out Cissy is there as well. When he returns home Cissy overhears him dictating a letter to the family she was staying with.moreless

    There are few scenes in this episode that are memorable. When Uncle Bill tells Cissy how much his brother meant to him you really understand why he feels so connected to these kids. He obviously feels a lot of guilt about not spending time with his brother. By taking in his kids he is making up for the lack of connection they had in their later years. When Cissy overhears Bill dictating the letter to the Graysons, telling them that he is sending Cissy back, Cissy overhears. She pretends she didn't and tries to convince Bill that she wants to go back to Indiana. When she says she came looking for love he realizes that he should keep her as well. The bath scene is also cute. I love the way Buffy gives Mrs. Beasley to Mr. French when he leaves. It convinces him that he too needs the love that this new family can offer.moreless
