inept at buying gifts ... her husband is worse at making a tea-party
reservation ... and her own mom (Marsha Mason) brings more troubles.
Also, Frankie asks the kids what they'll do differently when they're
parents; the kids, alas, answer honestly – and at length.

p.m., VH1. Two mismatched elements are juggled here – the
