Carol lends Marcia her favorite earrings, which are family heirlooms. Although she is told explicitly not to touch them, Cindy can't help but try them on when Marcia isn't around. When called by her mother, Cindy hides the earrings in a towel on the bathroom counter. When finished dealing with her mother, Cindy returns to the bathroom to find the earrings are gone. The one person Cindy confides in is Peter, who is learning how to be a detective akin to Sherlock Holmes and who she thinks can help her locate the earrings without anyone else finding out what they're doing. Can they find the earrings before anyone finds out Cindy lost them? Meanwhile, Mike is letting Carol decide what costumes to wear for a costume party they attend every year. Mike isn't as easy going about Carol's suggestions as he initially lets on he would be.
