Five-year-old Karen decides she's had enough of mom's nagging and announces that she's leaving home, for Spain, or possibly Greenland. Preparations are in full swing for a dinner party, and Dad agrees to let Ben crack some eggs -- which is a mistake. As the guests arrive, Ben gets his first taste of gin and Mom gets some unwelcome news from Angela. The drink loosens tongues. Things get said that can never be unsaid. The dinner party becomes a disaster zone -- and this time the parents can't blame any of it on the kids.
