Episode Summary


When Adam arrives at the house to celebrate his birthday with the family, he nearly gets run over by the Mercedes of Sheila Bloom, a woman his dad used to date. With Jackie nursing two bad ankles, Martin cooks dinner, leading to disaster. As a result, the family decides to go out for dinner at a Chinese restaurant. There, they encounter Sheila with her husband, telling them her mother recently died in her precious Mercedes, leading to the family's amusement. Later, they have to go to the Bloom residence as a result of Martin and Eddie getting each other's coats after leaving the restaurant. Adam and Jonny have difficulty hiding their laughter when they see Sheila again and things get crazier when the family car hits Sheila's Mercedes when they leave.
