Judy is upset at Bill because she always has to take the role of "bad cop" with the kids while Bill always gets to be "good cop." Bill feels Judy should lighten up. When the roles end up switched, Judy loves it, while Bill hates it. He has to clean up the messes the kids make while she gets to relax in the bathtub and get plenty of sleep for a change. When Bill concedes to Judy's point, Judy refuses to change back, so Bill drops the bad cop role and goes back being be the good cop as well. Now there are 2 good cops in the house, with Bill predicting Judy will "blink first" over him. As this stare down between parents goes on, the kids run amok and ransack the house. A couple of incidents with Lauren and Brian finally make Bill and Judy realize that always being the good cop is not the greatest thing for them.

Thank you, Brian.
