Come Back to Me
Season 1 | Episode 10 | Aired 12/19/04
Julie is still hiding Zach in her room and is relieved that her father's imminent breakup with his new girlfriend will keep her home this weekend. That's bad news for Susan, who had planned a romantic weekend alone with Mike. When Julie's dad shows up after all, Susan puts on her sexiest lingerie and tells Mike to come over. She hears Zach sneaking around and realizes it's not Mike. But it's Mike whom she ends up whacking on the head when she mistakes him for the intruder. Now the cat's out of the bag and Susan insists Zach go home. When Susan tries to lecture Julie, her daughter tells her she's been the real mother ever since the divorce.
Having waited long enough to hear from Mrs. Huber, Edie calls the police to let her into her friend's house.
