When Danny's mother arrives for an extended visit, the family realizes that as a divorced woman with independent children, Claire's recent retirement has left her feeling useless. To help her through this difficult time, Danny convinces everyone to act as if they can't function without Grandma. Leaving a few dirty dishes in the sink and allowing Claire to pick out a new bed for Michelle seem relatively harmless, but the little plan backfires when Claire decides that she should move in permanently. Will her precious baby boy have the courage to confront her with the truth about his foolish behavior? Meanwhile, Michelle is initially thrilled about getting out of her crib and having a brand-new "big girl bed," but when she gets scared, Jesse ends up having to sleep with her through the first night.
- After Claire announces that she's going to move in, she suggests that Jesse and Joey move out and get on with their lives. When she does this, she calls them "single, young men". However, at this point, Jesse was dating Becky. He didn't say anything about the "single" remark, probably because he was in shock upon hearing of Claire's desire to move in.
