In the first episode: Blanche welcomes her daughter, Rebecca, but not the miracle of modern medicine which is soon to make her a grandmother: artificial insemination. Rebecca announces she wants to be near her mother when the baby arrives.
Blanche is more preoccupied by the embarrassment of her single daughter giving birth in a local hospital then in accepting her daughter's choices. Not to worry, Rebecca plans to deliver in a birthing centre.
Armed with ankle-strengthening weights and St. Olaf-style skating costume, Rose trains for the Senior Sports Classic. She hopes to fulfill her parents' dream that she would some day become a champion ice skater.
A glimpse of drug-free childbirth leads Rebecca back to the local hospital. Blanche sees how how much her daughter needs her and sets aside judgment to coach Rebecca through delivery.
Back in the hospital waiting room, Rose realises that you don't always have to please your parents, especially when they're dead. Blanche appears, holding her new granddaughter.
As the ladies gather for a closer look, Blanche proudly announces that the baby was conceived through the miracle of artificial insemination. Everyone applauds.
