Ben's 12th birthday party is put on hold when Maggie (Joanna Kerns) goes into labor--two weeks overdue. As the family rushes to the hospital in eager anticipation, Ben (Jeremy Miller) feels more crowded and left out than ever. But in the end, he manages to reaffirm his importance in the Seaver household with the help of a man named Chris (Dick O'Neill). (Trivia alert: To keep the gender of the new Seaver baby a secret from the public, the series' producers filmed two different endings for this episode).
