The Fifth House on the Left, Part 2
After the earthquake (and rescuing a director from a sound-stage), Kelsey Smith-Hammer and Eugene find themselves stranded. Kelsey just pouts, but Eugene tries to help fireman, ambulance workers, and anyone else who's cleaning up after the earthquake.
Eugene and Kelsey finally make it back to Kelsey's house. Kelsey seems to have learned her lesson about being selfish. Later, the Smith-Hammer family gathers around the truck as Bernard and Eugene prepare to head back to Odyssey. They all give heartfelt goodbyes. It's been quite a California adventure! And now, back to Odyssey..where few things ever change.
