Storyline

Alice is taking a week long vacation, she who has arranged for her efficient cousin, Emma, to take over her job during her absence. Emma is a twenty year veteran, a Master Sergeant with the Women's Army Corps. Emma ends up running the household like it is the army, the kids being army privates. She only will allow things that are up to army regulation. Carol and Mike get off only marginally better as "officers". As such, the kids, in their words, would like an "honorable discharge" from Emma's army. Mike and Carol, however, realize that is not possible due to the sensitivity of Emma being Alice's cousin. Is there any way to make their time with Emma less army and more civilian? Written by Huggo

Goofs

Sgt. Emma says the family members deserve " A Good Conduct Medal with an oak leaf cluster ". In the Army subsequent awards of the Good Conduct Medal are indicated by a bar with knots on it, the medal is never awarded with an oak leaf cluster. A twenty year veteran would certainly know this.
