Plot: During a conversation with his neighbor at the local pub, Grayson learns that James normally plays a game of Chinese whispers with his wife and daughter, which allows them to reveal some home truths about each other. Then, through the help of their family therapist, they can work through their family troubles. Grayson thinks it's a great idea and decides to try it out on his family.
The next evening, during dinner, Grayson brings up the idea to the family. Stella and the kids think it's a crap idea, stating that it'll start arguments. Wilbur just doesn't want anyone finding out about his top secret project. Nina, however, think it's a great idea.
Sure enough, the secrets revealed actually cause some major arguments between family members. Stella and Paul argue over how Paul accidently broke her favourite kitty bowl, which Paul blamed on Buckley. Nina, Grayson and Emmy have a three-way argument over Emmy's sexual interactions with her boyfriend, Sean. Wilbur, meanwhile, decides to take this time to check up on his secret project. Nina eventually decides to put an end to the arguing, informing the family that some secrets are best kept that; a secret. They all apologise to each other and head out to get ice cream, leaving Wilbur home alone by accident.
