- With Mom and Dad gone, Erma becomes even grouchier.
- And, even worse than being cranky, Erma molests Brian.
- Jeannette catches Erma and yells at her.
- Erma tries to slap Jeannette, but Lori stops her.
- So Erma slaps Lori instead.
- Then Lori punches Erma in the face.
- Bam, Erma goes down.
- Erma won't allow the kids upstairs anymore, so they have to use the storm door to get in and out of the basement.
- When Dad returns, he is furious at what happened…furious at the kids.
- The kids wonder if Erma did to Dad what she did to Brian. It makes them all uncomfortable to think about it.
