Storyline

Richie and Lori Beth (along with their son, Richie Jr.), plus Ralph arrive home from the Army to a rousing homecoming celebration. But as everyone celebrates good times and fond memories, it becomes obvious Richie's dreams have changed. Sure, Howard gets Richie a job at the Milwaukee Journal, and despite Richie's tepid interest, seems to be doing a good job. But Richie confides in several people that his future plans have a different path than everybody else expects or wants: screen writing. Marion learns about this and becomes very upset, leading to a huge argument between mother and son. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>
