This time, their daughter Chelsea arrives with their friend Bill Ray and his 13-year-old son Billy. Chelsea asks parents to leave the boy for a month with them while she and Bill travel to Europe. Norman (albeit with some reluctance) and Ethel agree. The strained relationship between father and daughter is softened by the friendship of Norman and Billy.
