Applying Chapter 13!!!
20 May 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Another series of few episodes watched in the past,maybe it made for adult audiences,a little dated but it's funny,in this episode Jeannie is pushed to write a book about child's care,but put Major Nelson as the author,after a huge success he has to convincing Dr. Bellows and General Peterson how do it with children problem in three hours with a nephew and niece from them...simply apply a chapter 13 as Jeannie tried to say every time that Tony don't notice...often funny really.
