Due to Vicki's misinterpreting Ted's quip while doing the family's on-line banking, the Lawsons are re-categorized as deadbeats and Ted just plain dead.
Another “kiddie/adult show straddler” episode that strays away from Vicki's plot presence to dip into mainstream fare, in which it succeeds only mildly. Christie hams it up and steals the show, but it's all really supposed to rotate around Vicki, no matter the order of billing in the opening credits.
Notable is Ted's funeral in the living room, with his honor in a casket sleeping the scene away.
