MONDO EXTRAS

Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers

Inside, Maggie admits that she hates The Plan. Jason accuses her of changing her mind. Maggie denies it, since that wasn't part of The Plan. Jason suggests that they go look at the original draft of the plan, and Maggie agrees.

Mike's kids are still running around. Shouldn't they be going to bed? They hide in the basement to get away from Chrissy, who is stomping around with Mickey's guitar.

Maggie and Jason head into their closet to dig up The Plan, arguing all the way. Meanwhile, Carol's baby is still kicking her. Chrissy goes into the garage to play the guitar, and shuts the door. Carol starts counting the garage sale money. Chrissy turns on her amp, and plays a chord, which blows a fuse.

Maggie and Jason are stuck in the panic room. Jason explains that the police will have to open the door, but that he can't call them, because he didn't want to pay for an extra phone line. Don't either of them have cell phones? Everyone else in the family does. Jason says he has a survival kit, and that the room is soundproof. He urges Maggie not to panic, but she already is. Jason says she's in the right place. Ba dum bump.

Carol is downstairs, alone. For some unknown reason, she decides to crawl through the doggy door to get outside. Can't she just use...you know, the doorknob? Are the doors to the house electronic somehow? So Carol gets stuck in the doggy door, because of her pregnant belly. Meanwhile, the kids are trapped in the basement in the dark, and Chrissy is trapped in the garage.

Jason and Maggie, still stuck in the closet, are going through photographs of their old vacations and reminiscing.

Carol is still stuck in the dog door, and I still can't figure out why she was trying to go through it in the first place.

Back in the closet, Maggie says gently that one day she hopes that Jason will surprise her with a trip to Europe, and admit that his whole cheapskate thing was a ruse to save up enough money to make all her dreams come true. Jason says he pinched pennies so that they could have enough money for the special things. Jason adds that the RV was supposed to be the big topper, but that he was out of touch with her dreams. Maggie says that she was out of touch, too. They both agree that they don't want to go anywhere without each other. And then they totally do it. Just kidding.

Mike pulls in the driveway, Michelle in the passenger seat. He stops the car and she starts to get out, but he stops her. Michelle apologizes and says that she was mad at him and doesn't want him to go to Tokyo. Mike says that he gets it: cue the heartwarming speech about how he tries to make up for missing time with her by being her friend instead of her dad. Mike concludes by saying that Michelle is grounded because she, and not the car, is his "precious baby." Blech. Mike offers to let Michelle pull the car into the garage and...the local news is back. And get this. There still hasn't been a deal with the union. They interrupted the show to let us know that things are looking better. Seriously. And there will be a vote later in the week. For this, they interrupted the Seavers? I just realized that maybe this whole section of the movie was sponsored by the power company, like "This is what happens if you don't have power. You get stuck in dog doors for no good reason." Although I don't know that there is ever a good reason to be stuck in a dog door.
