Son is the fifteenth episode of the second season in this television sitcom on Family Matters, which was aired from ABC on January 11, 1991. It was directed by Gary Menteer and written by Jose Rivera.
Rachel asks Carl to build a playhouse for Richie, but Carl cannot find his screwdriver. Eddie tells Carl he used it to fix his bike, and ignores Carl and by talking to Jolene on the phone. Carl turns the phone off and they argue. Eddie talks back and Carl grounds him by sending him to his room. Defying Carl, he sneaks out and goes on his date with Jolene. Eddie comes back then and tries to hide the evidence upstairs in his room. However, Carl ironically appears while he is going upstairs. Carl sees the evidence and grounds him for one month, then two more months for his attitude. Carl and Eddie get into a heated argument over house rules, prompting the eldest Winslow son to threaten to move out (even though he doesn't really have a plan). Harriette makes the two sit at a table and she tells the story of when Eddie was born. After Carl talks to Eddie, Eddie decides to stay home saying, "Dad, I'd like to stay", and Carl saying, "I would like that too, son"
