Taylor has just gotten her license, after almost failing the test at the beginning of the movie. They leave the house to depart for a shopping trip, but leave a towel on the stove, starting a house fire.

He goes out of town, looking for a rare butterfly to add to his collection. This leaves the girls to look after the dairy.
