Plot: Feeling that he's not contributing enough to the household expenses, Robbie (Don Grady) decides to quit school, get a job, and move his family into their own place. Rob's college counselor (Vince Howard) urges him to think it over before rushing into such a major decision, and asks the administration office to delay his paperwork over the weekend. The stalling tactic gives Rob enough time to discover that despite the added financial burden placed on his father, Steve (Fred MacMurray) enjoys taking care of his grandchildren, and that he has plans to redesign Rob's room to accommodate Rob, Katie (Tina Cole) and the triplets.—S Sather
