Adam thinks this is a great idea (well, who wouldn't?) and despite Caroline's protests they head off to see Dick Tracy!

BEVERLY: It's not an it, it was a girl.
Melanie apologises and Jim says it's OK; Helen shoves Melanie out of the door to go outside and look at some paintings!

Jim is not happy but Beverly says she must stay busy and Jim relents.
Chrissie didn't enjoy the move too much but Caroline does, they talk about Adam's studying to be a Doctor. He says he is in medicine to make money, Caroline believes him but Chrissie knows he's joking; the girls compete for Adam's attention by asking him lots of questions.
Ryan returns home and he says he is fed up of Annabelle's friends competing about money. Dorothy is concerned that Ryan spent all of his money on his present; Ryan says he has to impress Annabelle because her parents are very rich.
DOROTHY: Oh and we are just the poor people living in squalor
Ryan says he is embarrassed when he brings Annabelle home and runs off to bed.
The girls laugh at every joke Adam tells, Caroline answers the door to Melanie who wants to borrow some blankets. Adam announces that he will be living in number 28 with his parents; the girls are delighted at this news. Melanie says she is missing some pigs so if he finds any to let her know! Adam offers to give Melanie a lift home and says goodnight to the twins. Chrissie thinks Adam will ask one of them out on a date, Caroline says he won't but Chrissie is worried as they both like him.
Ryan comes in and asks for some money but Dorothy doesn't have any so she goes to the Emergency Fund. Ryan distracts her by asking about her trip.

Melanie sees Ryan and he tells her how he is broke, she can't end him any money
MELAINE: With the rent and flat bond you could say I'm flat broke!
Ryan looks puzzled.
MELANIE (Laughing): Flat broke, get it?
RYAN: Oh yeah.
Inside the twins quiz Melanie on what Adam said during their ride home last night but she doesn't give anything away. Caroline says Adam asked her out first so she should be able to go out with him, Chrissie responds by saying they have a rule that they don't ever date the same guy and they should both keep away from him.
MELANIE: Just keep your hands off Adam and there's no problem
Neither girl looks happy about this!

BEVERLY: A good mother would make time.
