Debbie, sad and lonely after Aunt Ginger leaves, steals a little boy from a birthday party. In classic Gallagher style, the family hatches a plan to return the toddler safe and sound without attracting attention from the Chicago Police Department, who has made the kidnapping a top priority. Karen, in complete defiance of her father, starts to tease Frank sexually. Not knowing what to make of it, Frank keeps himself busy with booze, picking up Sheila's meds from the pharmacy and concentrating on finding the missing boy. What began as an innocent lie for Kevin (series star STEVE HOWEY) to protect himself from a hot girl ultimately becomes a proposal of marriage for Veronica (series star SHANOLA HAMPTON).
