Christine, et al, brace themselves for another disaster when they go to see Ritchie in his school play. But Ritchie shocks them all with an incredible performance and further, he's invited to audition for a national commercial. Christine wants to pursue it and Richard doesn't, so they let Ritchie decide. Ritchie says no and Christine is disappointed. She and Matthew discuss how their lives would have been different had their mother encouraged them at their true love dancing, which leads to a dance-handoff between them, and makes Christine decide that she knows what's best for her kid even if he doesn't. She has Ritchie audition and Richard is livid until he finds out Ritchie actually got the commercial.
