Episode Summary

EDIT
Love, Kidney
AIRED:
While playing the accordion at dinner, Uncle Ed falls ill and faints into the fish tank while cooling off. He ends up in the hospital and when he wakes up he finds out that he needs to have a kidney transplant due to not living a healthy life and a sibling would be the best bet for a transplant. The Chief talks with Ed and is worried about him and tells him he will do anything to help him get through this. Ed asks him if he'll donate his kidney to him and he agrees. Once the family hears this, Julie is against it, and slowly the rest of the family begins to get scared and they have thoughts on the Chief dying. The Chief tells Nell that if he does die in the operation that she can raise the girls and she will get the house. However, the operation is a success and everyone dances as Ed's doctor plays the accordion for the family.moreless
