Plot Synopsis: [?]
Things get a little tense around the Darling household when Janet declares no TV for a week; while the rest of the family spends quality time together, Clarissa is hard at work trying to figure out a way to get television back into her life.
Subplots: [?]
Marshall designs a pickle-shaped building for ``Gherkins a Go-Go'' and then moves on to fixing things around the house; Ferguson pretends to read while actually going for the highest score ever on his ``Megaman XII'' video game; Janet creates a home library complete with card catalog, whips up some culinary questionables, and shows some particularly nasty TV withdrawal symptoms; Sam is learning to surf.
Opening Scene: [?]
``Ssh!! I think we're safe!'' / Mom has declared no TV for a week.

``Hey, we gotta do something till the TV gets fixed.'' [Then Ferguson (in a chorus of `Uh-uh-uh...'s) guesses Sam's charade: ``Endless Summer! Yes!'']
