Thrilled to have her family back, Annie promises to make their visit perfecteven though relations between mother and daughter have never been what you'd call smooth. Over the years, Jackie and Annie have been known to have frequent differences of opinion.

She's also got Steven Plofkerthe flirtatious and tasty widowed physician next door, to keep her distracted.
