A single mother (Applegate) tries to find love again with her new boyfriend Diego, of whom her father disapproves.

Trivia
→ During a taping of one episode, Christina Applegate was surprisingly reunited on-set with one of her Married… with Children (1987) co-stars. As part of her script in this episode, she rings the doorbell. But to her surprise, Ed O’Neill answered the door and said, “Where have you been, young lady?” Applegate responded with a dropped jaw, tears of joy, and a big hug.
→ What attracted Christina Applegate to this role more than anything was that she saw Jess as the anti-Kelly Bundy, as she was smart and responsible unlike Kelly who was not.
