Playing It Safe
Family Night is coming up the following week and the kids are having fun with families in different ways. All except for Kathy, who feels her family is too small since she's an only child. Barney comes to see the others' projects for the special night, while she is in sorrow. Bringing it up to Barney later, he tells her that her family's love is a wonderful size. Luci reads a story about family pets, and Kathy leads the gang in singing My Family's Just Right for Me, to show her changed thoughts.
