Summary

One in this long-running daytime serial, set in the midwestern town of Oakdale. In this episode, Dr. Bob Hughes returns home to find his mother Nancy knitting a sweater for his son, Tom. Nancy inquires about Bob's estranged wife, Lisa, whom has been alienated from the family since their divorce. Bob pleads with his mother to stop nagging him and promises to bring Lisa over for Thanksgiving. Elsewhere, Bob has lunch with his friend and mentor Dr. Stewart in an upscale restaurant, where he is surprised to learn that his sister Penny has been influencing the career of a colleague, Neil Wade. Additionally, Bob seeks Dr. Stewart's advice in dealing with his problematic son Tom, who has been causing trouble in play school since the divorce. Dr. Stewart encourages Bob to reconcile with Lisa, but Bob insists that he just wants to spare Tom any distress. Later, Lisa makes a collect call to her mother, Alma, and asks for some money to help finance her own apartment. Alma stalls the loan, suggesting that Lisa first try to make amends with Bob. Includes commercials.
