Episode Summary

EDIT
New Moon
AIRED:
In the season/series premiere, Dorothy Jane starts out talking to the "Man in the Moon." She explains that Millicent is unable to make payments on the house and they will have to leave Pyramid Corners, Oklahoma forever. Later, on the bus, Dorothy Jane, still talking to the "Man in the Moon," explains that the family will be moving in with a business man, Brian Morgan, in which Millicent will be taking a job as a nanny for him and his kids. When the Torkelsons arrive at the Morgans, Molly and Gregory, Brian's kids, immediately dislike the whole Torkelsons family and devise a plan to get them back to Oklahoma. Molly tries to change Dorothy Jane's personality while Gregory makes Mary Sue and Chuckie Lee his "slaves." Their plan backfires, as Millicent finds out. Millicent then talks to Brian about his mistakes in fatherhood. Brian explains to Millicent that when his wife died, he had to take over her company and work hard to make it successful which explains the lack of time spent with his family. Brian then explains to his kids that the reason he brought the Torkelsons to their home is because they had a very hard life and he wanted his kids to learn about responsibility. Dorothy Jane learns of Molly's plan through a conversation with Millicent, and they both agree that Brian and his family need some time to adjust to them.moreless
