The One Where No One Has the Right Disability Insurance

What does Chris need but doesn’t want, Seth doesn’t need but Sandi wants, and John’s family want and need but couldn’t have? (It’s not Nanny MacPhee, in case you’re wondering, although that would be the Best Episode Ever).

No, it’s…disability insurance! YAAAAAYYYY!

Turns out, nobody here has enough or the right kind or even the right person insured…so…BoOoOo, I guess.
