Alvin nor Nick are amused that Lulu, who was leaving, instead became the practice chief, yet soldier on in the kids' interest. Nick sues for the white Aaronson couple which wants to keep their colored IVF baby but clearly didn't receive an embryo from the father's sperm, only to hear a rare medical explication. Nick's teen charge is remanded to a psych ward, despite mental sanity, for lack of a more suitable institution as her mother is a virtual vegetable and her ex-con father a recovered lush, whose parental disqualification is almost impossible to revert. Burton wrestles with is adopted daughter's first love, despite her schoolmate Hank seeming suitable. Written by KGF Vissers
