“You're just going to leave me with a baby?! What
am I supposed to do with a baby?”
mother drops in unexpectedly with her new twenty-four-year old husband,
a baby abandoned in Joel's waiting room is
temporarily adopted by the townspeople, and Adam
undergoes the same changes as his pregnant wife.
youthful mother, Tammy Tambo
(guest star Wendy
Schaal), visits unexpectedly to introduce her daughter to her
new husband. Tammy admits that she has led her new love, twenty-four-year-old
Kenny (guest star Sean
O'Bryan), to believe that Shelly is Tammy's older sister. The
two women have an argument and Tammy apologizes for not being a
real mother to Shelly. Shelly realizes how lucky she is to have
her mother as her best friend.
baby abandoned in Joel's waiting room is immediately taken in by
the townspeople. As it is passed from person to person, everyone
is very delighted with the appearance of the child and, much to
Joel's dismay, no one questions who the mother might be or why the
baby was left. Just as the town is falling into a routine of caring
for the infant, and as Joel finally accepts that she is there to
stay, the baby is reclaimed by her mother.
Joel compliments Adam on his cooking, he is shocked at Adam's congenial
response. Confronted by Joel about this change in his personality,
Adam explains that he doesn't feel like himself, he feels... happy.
Joel suggests that he is suffering from Couvade Syndrome, sympathetic
pregnancy, a condition in which men, in an attempt to mask their
anxiety over their mate's pregnancy, displace their feelings with
physical manifestations of pregnancy itself. The feelings eventually
pass when Adam and Eve simultaneously
enter their second trimester and Adam discovers he is more than
just an extraordinary chef—he is also a husband, a teacher, a breadwinner,
and soon, a father.

Baby "G" - real name is Barbara Jean. "G" is
for big brother George.
As Baby G came to us, today she also left. Come to find out the

comes from the Greek meaning stranger. She came to us a stranger,
