But the job is not quite what Joe expected, causing him to reevaluate his place in the house, and Mel scheming to prove how much everyone needs him. Meanwhile Lennox thinks her artist boyfriend Zander may have found another muse, and Ryder’s class trip has an unexpected outcome.

With Mel spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Joey Lawrence) who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family’s “manny”.
