Bailey does, but is told she's not in the least maternal, so he pretends the name Robin Merrin was adopted later. Charlie realizes Kirsten neglected to get Owen enrolled in a good pre-school, which is urgent now Bill can't help out whole days any more. His last chance depends on a rule children must be potty trained, and Charlie simply can't pull that off. Justin sort of expected Julia to be jealous when his parents accept to host his English friend Allison 'Allie', but the girls soon become firm friends. Julia however feels awkward when Allie admits a lesbian interest in her and is then forced into telling about it to protect Allie from a possibly dangerous situation. Kirsten is far from amused by Claudia's impertinent tricks to lure her to the Salinger house, even after meeting her new date Michael and his daughter about her age. Written by KGF Vissers See less
