==Summary== Several members of the Lane family simultaneously return home, causing Jane and Trent to eventually seek shelter elsewhere. Vincent, Penny and Wind Lane make their first appearances in this episode, and Amanda Lane is fully revealed (her feet were seen in Arts 'n Crass). As [[Helen]] bemoans the fact that there's very little communication in the Morgendorffer family, the Lanes suddenly become cursed with too much of it as the various wandering Lanes return to the nest: [[Jane]]'s mother [[Amanda Lane]]; [[Wind Lane|Wind]], when his third marriage hits the rocks; [[Penny Lane|Penny]] (along with her psychotic parrot [[Chiquito]]), when her Costa Rican craft shop is wiped out by a volcano; and their father, [[Vincent Lane|Vincent]], who's home to develop his photos of Celtic rock formations. Little by little, Jane feels herself literally squeezed out of her house and irritated with her mother's disinterest in taking control of the situation. She ends up taking refuge with the Morgendorffers. There, she's questioned about [[Daria Morgendorffer|Daria]] by Helen and [[Jake]], who both feel they know too little about their girls. Soon, [[Trent Lane|Trent]] finds himself in the same predicament as Jane, just as his nephew & niece [[Courtney]] and [[Adrian]] turn up (later followed by their mother [[Summer Lane|Summer]]). He decides to stay in the [[Tank]] for a while, but is able to weasel his way into staying with the Morgendorffers when he drops by to inform Jane of his plans. Having Trent in such close proximity forces Daria to come face to face with her crush on him, but when she finds out that [[Monique]] is his girlfriend (after she drops by to pick him up), she imagines -- with a little prodding from [[Quinn]] -- how her life would turn out if she actually hooked up with him... Which is Trent as an overweight, unemployed bum, and her working double-shifts to support the family. ''That'', she thinks, has killed her crush. Amanda finally can't stand having her wayward children around the house anymore, and in desperation, she pleads with Helen to help her get her home back. Helen's plan? A family dinner, where their bickering succeeds in driving the Lane siblings off once again to parts unknown. As Jane and Trent prepare to leave, Trent (who has broken up with Monique for the umpteenth time) comments to Daria that it's too bad she's not a few years older, otherwise he could take her out. With that, Daria's crush returns with a vengeance.
