Virginia and her husband, Burt, who had Jimmy at the tender age of 15, find themselves back in the baby game, but now with their granddaughter, they have a chance to get it right. The Chances live with Jimmy's great-grandmother, Maw Maw. Once the rock of the family, she now forces everyone to stay on their toes.

JIMMY AND THE KID
Episode: season 2 episode 6
Jimmy is in love with Sabrina, but he can't bring himself to tell her. However, when Trevor, a libidinous and manipulative 13 year old, tries to hit on Sabrina, he'll only agree to back off and keep Jimmy's secret if Jimmy finds him a girl of his own. Thirteen-year-old Judy is definitely interested in Trevor, but her overly protective father misinterprets Jimmy's approach and takes action when he thinks that Jimmy is hitting on his little girl.
