The Growing Pains Reunion Movie

Carol, Mike, and Jason have an emergency conference in the bathroom. Carol says that Mac Robinson is rich and can afford the best, and that's why he fired Maggie. Ooh, burn! Jason suggests that with Carol's help, Maggie could win. Mike agrees. Jason then suggests hiring Mike's firm to coordinate the media campaign. Jason keeps flushing the toilet to cover the conversation. Like who is fooled by that? Carol says she's in for a few weeks to get things up and running.

Jason announces that Carol, Mike, and Ben will be helping with the campaign, and that Ben will be moving back in with his parents "now that his dot-com is downsized." Please, let this be the end of the dot-com jokes.

The family puts up a "Maggie Malone" banner at her campaign headquarters in Long Island. Maggie mentions that she wants to debate Mac. The family gathers in front of their new home. Maggie mentions that she wants to debate Mac. Jason gives Ben a haircut -- hooray! Maggie mentions that she wants to debate Mac. Did they mention that Maggie wants to debate Mac?

Mike shows off some ideas for ads for Maggie's campaign. They are all lame rip-offs of other ad campaigns. Carol and Maggie don't like them. Maggie explains that her angle is that she's a suburban mom, of the people, running against a rich guy. Mike apologizes, saying that he sells advertising and doesn't create it.

Carol addresses the campaign volunteers. Stereotypically Swishy Guy (who talks a little like the Church Lady) questions Carol's lack of experience. Mike enters, eating. Chrissy enters, filming, and explains that she talked her teachers into letting her make a documentary of the campaign. See, because she's smart, like Carol, but a scam artist, like Mike. Get it? I don't know if I'd mentioned that yet. Carol dismisses the meeting, and Mike tells her she has no people skills. Carol says that the campaign is off to a lousy start, that their opponent won't debate them, and that they have "about as much of a chance as Ben Seaver dot com." Hey, I thought we declared a moratorium on the dot-com jokes! Mike gives Carol a little pep talk. Chrissy films it.

Maggie talks to some old lady, explaining that her opponent won't debate her. Turns out this is a piece on the local news. The Seavers are watching said news piece and are excited that Maggie is said to have a chance. Carol suggests they "play the won't debate angle." What? They want to debate? Since when?

Ben (now minus the Bad Wig but with the Black Eyebrows) tries to get into the campaign headquarters. Stereotypically Swishy Guy (SSG) won't let him in because it's "senior staff only." Ben protests, but SSG pushes him out.
