Eric helps a single mother named Harriet and her son Clarence to try and convince the IRS that she shouldn't be responsible for her ex-boyfriend's enormous debts. Annie confronts the kids about their lack of good manners after an incident at a restaurant. The kids do not take Annie seriously and fool around. Meanwhile, Matt accuses Mary and Lucy of placing a personal ad in his name in the school newspaper for a date. Also, Simon and Ruthie try to figure out how to pay off Happy's accidental credit card and purchase.


Goofs & Errors[]

  • Eric talks to Mr. Smith with a cell phone to find out which office he's in. However, in future episodes, it states that the Camdens don't have cell phones. Perhaps he borrowed it as he did in the Valentine's episode back in season 1.
  • In Who Knew? the rule was that if you're old enough to pick out your clothes, you're old enough to wash them. However, in this episode, Lucy just expects Annie to wash a sweater for her.
