Storyline

Doris convenes a household meeting, minus one person: LeRoy. The reason?: it's LeRoy's one year anniversary as a member of the "family", and Doris wants to throw him a surprise party to celebrate the milestone. Doris issues a reconnaissance mission: for them to find out what LeRoy would really like as a gift, without telling him about the anniversary, the party or the fact of the plan to buy him a gift. Their reconnaissance uncovers that LeRoy is not into material possessions. But a letter LeRoy receives from his grandmother makes Doris realize the perfect gift would be to give LeRoy a week off, and bus fare so that he can visit his grandmother. Buck doesn't like the idea as he is concerned about them not being able to do all LeRoy's chores while he's gone above their own work. So Doris, Billy and Toby decide to do a trial run in preparation for LeRoy's absence, with interesting results, especially on LeRoy's psyche. Written by Huggo
