A Member of the Family, Part 2
“A Member of the Family, Part 2” is episode #12 of the Family Portraits audio series. It was written by Susan McBride and Steve Harris, and originally aired on April 6, 1987.

Summary

Whit's grandson Monty comes to visit him but starts causing problems for Whit and the rest of the town when Monty starts acting strangely, feeling his grandfather has been treating him unfairly.

Plot

After the seemingly surprise visit from Jana, Whit tries to explain everything to her. But she refuses to listen, and the discussion quickly turns into an argument. Angry, she goes upstairs to find Monty, but he isn't there. He has run away! Jana tells Whit what has happened and they leave for the police station. They arrive and try to report Monty's disappearance, but he is already there. He was picked up for breaking a window at Whit's End. The three return to Whit's house to sort everything out.

After talking to Monty, they send him to his room, and father and daughter are finally left alone. Whit begins to explain some Whittaker family history to Jana. Whit begins to talk to her about when her brother, Jerry, died in Vietnam, they all grieved differently. Whit spent much more time with Jason, his only remaining son, partly because he missed Jerry so much, and partly because Jason would soon be of draft age himself. Unintentionally, Jana was lost in the whole ordeal, and before Whit knew what happened, there was a huge emotional gap between them. Whit tells her that he would like to fill that gap, and Jana agrees. For the first time in years, they both are happy — except for Monty, who has to mow lawns so he can pay his grandfather back for the window.
