Shirley has a tendency to burst into musical numbers and is obsessed with the idea that her family is completely happy and normal. Her daughters believe that they suffer from everything from schizophrenia to bipolar disorder to antisocial personality disorder.

Shaz proceeds to show the Moochmore girls that they are strong individuals and that the rest of the world is crazy.
