Lucy the American Mother


Lucy the American Mother

Here's Lucy

Craig begins production on a documentary entitled "A Day in the Life of My Mother", and the family becomes self-conscious of the camera.

Lucy realizes that she has left Kim's boyfriend's $100 bill in a book that she had Mary Jane return to the library. Craig's filming crew follow Lucy to the library on a mad hunt for the $100 bill. The librarian ends up as the star of the documentary instead.

Special Notes: Mary Jane Croft joins the cast as Mary Jane, appearing sporadically in season 3 and 4, and as a regular in the final two seasons. A large part of the story is about a desperate Lucy's attempts to retrieve the book "Kiss Me Stranger", which has a one hundred dollar bill in it, creating havoc at the library, in the process.
