Lies and half-truths plague the Camden clan when a co-worker's tall tales taint Matt's reputation, jeopardizing his job, and a classmate steals a story that Ruthie created, while a reporter (Sam Rubin) gets a too perfect picture when he profiles the family. And John (Chaz Lamar Shepherd) aims to confront a politician who quotes Maya Angelou's verse as if it were his own. Ruthie: Mackenzie Rosman. Eric: Stephen Collins. Annie: Catherine Hicks. Matt: Barry Watson.
