Episode InfoEdit

Episode #43 - Season 2, Episode 21

First Aired: May 3, 1984

Title:  A play on the title of the book Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, who also faced a difficult time in life.


Jennifer is in the hospital to have her tonsils removed.  She is understandably afraid of the procedure ahead, so she writes her fears to her diary.  The episode flashes back to earlier memories of Jennifer thinking about how badly she's treated her family (though apparently not from older episodes).  Mallory is nervous about her date with Kevin (played by Michael David Wright), and Jennifer does her best to mess it up.  She tries to manipulate her parents against one another, fails to help Alex rehearse, and has a major attitude with her mother for going back to work.  She learns some things along the way, and makes amends with her family after the operation.

Funny MomentsEdit

  • Alex wants help rehearsing for an audition in the school play.  Mallory refuses saying, "I have too much respect for the theater.  Besides, Gilligan's Island's on now."
