Episode Summary

EDIT
The No-Talking Contest / The Search For The Sock
AIRED:
The No Talking Contest: The children are helping to clean the kitchen, and Bobby and Little Bill complain to Big Bill that April's singing is annoying them. Their father says that while they are working together they are not to fight, so April proposes a "No Talking Contest" so they won't say anything hurtful to one another. Bobby gets Little Bill to be the first one to break the silence by dropping his watch, but Bill claims Bobby cheated by saying "Oops" when he dropped the watched to get his brother's attention. When a second round causes April to laugh, they decide to make a rule that no one can make any type of sound, not just talking, in order to win. Big Bill wonders what's going on when the children refuse to answer the telephone and don't want to talk to Brenda. The children manage to stay quiet while cleaning the kitchen, but Little Bill notices that Bobby accidentally knocked his watch into the trash, and Big Bill is about to deliver the bag to the garbage man. He screams for his father to stop so they can retrieve Bobby's watch; April and Bobby decide that although Little Bill was the first one the break the silence, he did it for a good cause, so he's the real winner of the game.

The Search For The Sock: Brenda is going around the house emptying laundry hampers to start the wash when Little Bill asks if he can be her "Laundry Helper." His mother allows him to add the soap to the washing machine and asks him to sort the socks after the load is finished. Little Bill is almost done organizing the socks when he discovers he's misplaced one of April's "lucky" socks that she wears during basketball practices. He searches the laundry room, the dryer and all around the house looking for the missing sock; in his quest, he manages to locate other lost items, such as one of Brenda's hair combs and April's attendance pin she won at school. Brenda praises Bill for all his help and offers to reward him with ice cream, but he's disappointed about not finding the sock and feels he let his mother down. April returns home, and when Bill tells her he lost her sock, she understands and says it will turn up eventually. Just as they are about to leave for the ice cream shop, Little Bill notices the missing sock-- it was stuck to the bottom of Brenda's skirt the whole time.moreless
