Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Now that Jason (Alan Thicke) is a stay-at-home dad, Maggie (Joanna Kerns) begins to worry that he is monopolizing the children. The limit comes when Carol (Tracey Gold) comes to Jason to discuss a "boy problem", which once upon a time was exclusively Maggie's domain. Meanwhile, Mike (Kirk Cameron) goes to extreme (and extremely hilarious) lengths to cover up the fact that his girlfriend's dog has run away while he was taking care of the mutt. Olivia D'Abo makes the first of her two Growing Pains appearances, this time in the role of nonplussed dog owner Wendy.
