Nanny (Juliet Mills) is struggling to arrange for neighbors/friends to drive the children to various places. The need is seen for a second car, and Professor Everett (Richard Long) says he will moonlight with teaching an extra class the next semester to pay for a used car. The family goes car shopping only to see a sedan go haywire. But, Nanny comes across an old car in Mrs. Patterson's garage and is simply given it in exchange for Grandma Figalilly's recipe for shepherd's pie and a $25 towing charge. She shows the family a broken down Model A, which she begins to help fix up with young Butch (Trent Lehman) and Hal (David Doremus). They work unfailingly to restore the car to where she can take it on a driving test. The professor gives Nanny lessons before taking her to get her license where she is given the test by everyone's favorite no-nonsense authority figure Charles Lane. During the test they run across a man and his pregnant wife whose vehicle has a flat and must take them to the hospital. It's a wild, comical drive, but how will it affect her test? Through the first seven episodes this has been the first to have enough plot and humor for me to find enjoyable. It's a good episode!
