The Langfords and the Riders have been friends for years. Even their children are playmates. They completely understand and admire each other -- until Mrs. Rider phones the Langford home and leaves a message with Ranny/Renee, the youngest, who is so engrossed in a video game, (s)he can't be expected to get the message right! (S)He gets both families embroiled in a serious quarrel, and right before Christmas, too! (S)He finally brings to light what actually caused the misunderstanding and tops everything by filling in at the last moment in the church pageant. The role? “Brotherly Love”!
