Plot

  • This episode focuses on The Blake Family. One day, Stella and Carlos are out on an anniversary and leave Mel and Lori in charge of Anna. However, Anna cries so hard that Mel and Lori have to cover their ears. So they both seek help from Polly The Therapist (voiced by Lauren Tom) to make sure Anna stops crying. However, The Wolfpack try to make Anna cry even more louder, but they fail. After that, Anna has stopped crying and is fast asleep. When Stella and Carlos return, they thank Mel and Lori for babysitting Anna.
