Robbie impresses fiancée, Tina, and Pete with his handy-man skills, also it's his way to hide from his moody dad, who falls and seems to have great trouble remembering anything not related to animals. Jim's professional psychiatric therapy is hard enough to cope with without whining Joanie butting in. She refuses to take notice of Syd's medical expert advice that the father may need institutional care. Heather is rushed off her feet and alone in the surgery, and looses cocker-spaniel Arthur. Syd's hunky adolescent pneumonia-patient Jason Zeller has nobody to take care of him; he refuses any contact with, or help from, his estranged father, Steven Zeller, who lives with his gay partner Chris. Joe won't take no on his dream invitation to a governor's ball with the king of Morocco, even throws in a private fashion show, but she's otherwise preoccupied.
