Storyline

The Solomons start doubting their normalness. When both August and Mary admit they can sometimes be pretty weird, the Solomons decide to become as average as possible. This means they move to an apartment building, Tommy gets his hair cut, they all start reading John Grisham and wear the same sweaters. Meanwhile, a new professor starts at Rutherford University.
