Episode Summary

EDIT
Getting to Know You
AIRED:
Nell has a date with a foot doctor who doesn't like children and doesn't know how to tell Joey when she invites him to dinner. She tells everyone to leave for the night so she can be alone with him and introduce him to Joey. Shortly after everyone leaves, Officer Simpson leaves his cousins adopted children with Nell to babysit for her because her husband re-located to LA for his job and they need to look for a place to stay. Nell agrees, but is in for a surprise when there are over a dozen of them from different countries, too, and also leaves their dog with Nell. She sends them all upstairs and to be quiet and sleep when her date arrives. Simpson calls Nell and tells her he will be a little late because there is someone threatening to jump off a building and commit suicide. Then Nell introduces Joey to her date, who is not pleased much by him and keeps his distance. When the kids come downstairs, Nell's date doesn't like it at all and gets up and leaves, but tells Joey it was nice meeting him and tells Nell that maybe sometime in the future he will see her again. Nell is upset at how everything turned out, but is pleased and cries when she hears all the children singing "What The World Needs Now Is Love" in front of the family piano, and when Simpson calls back to tell Nell he got the suicidal guy down safely and will be over soon to pick up the kids, she tells him to take all the time he needs.moreless
