This whole episode looks at what orphans would go through as potential parents visit the orphanage to look for a child. And of course different children handle the situation differently. Matt, an extrovert, easily have parents fall in love with him. His brother David, an introvert, practically gives up before trying. In this episode David and Matt deal with the situation of Matt getting an offer to be adopted, but must leave David. Another orphan, Chris, has never known his parents, has had the experience of parents not wanting him because he cannot answer questions about his past. So he decides to invent a history in order to get parents.
