911 - Comedy

A frantic woman shows up at a police station to file a missing person's report.  "Alice Moore has been missing for maybe 3 or 4 years," the woman claims.  The officer is at once suspicious and begins asking questions about Alice's disappearance. "Why didn't you report this earlier?" he asks the woman.  Her reply was, "I figured she'd come back eventually, but she didn't."  The woman then goes on to tell how Alice lived a carefree life full of hobbies and interests, but that it all seemed to change after she had children.  When the woman finally shows the officer a picture of Alice, the officer wants to know if this is all a bad joke, because the woman reporting Alice missing, is none other than Alice, herself.

Jack is tired of hearing his wife complain about how tired she is, how busy she is keeping up with the kids and how hard she works as a mom, so he decides to enlist in a mommy training camp to prove that her complaints "are all in her head." After all, he thinks, "How hard can it be?"  His confidence begins to waver when Nora, the woman in charge, brings out a HUGE training manual with the list of all his duties.  The title of "mother" doesn't seem so easy after Jack hears what his training will require, which includes things like: making home-cooked meals only (no fast food), making lists and grocery shopping, cleaning, doing laundry, scheduling appointments, sending out birthday cards to friends and family (no e-mail, since cards are more personal), becoming a "room mother," dieting, plucking his eyebrows, shaving his legs...and the list goes on and on.  By the end of the skit, Jack isn't so convinced being a mom is such an easy task and decides to not only re-think his enrollment in the training camp, but he feels he owes his wife a big apology, and a lot more help around the house!

The Board's idea of Hall of Fame material, is a "Leave it to Beaver" type of mother, but Angela insists that every mother is special and deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. She says, "All moms are extraordinary.  Not because of what we do, if we work or don't work, if we're married or single, if we have 1 child or 10...what makes us special is who we are: the fact that we love our children and do our best to raise them." The Board seems skeptical at first but Angela eventually wins them over, and for a moment even both Sarah and Hagar find something in the other to admire: they're both moms.
