Episode Info

The Ingalls' newly adopted son, James (Jason Bateman), is desperate to "belong," and even more desperate to emulate his older adoptive brother, Albert (Matthew Laborteaux). After breaking Albert's razor, James tries to make amends by getting Albert another one. Unfortunately, he doesn't bother to pay for the new razor, and when he is accused of being a thief, James runs away -- obliging Albert, himself an adoptee, to persuade him to return.
