Carrie is upset with Doug for immediately agreeing to be Godparents to Deacon and Kelly's kids. She asks him if he is prepared to be a parent to the kids if, God forbid, something should happen to Deacon and Kelly. Doug says nothing will happen, and Carrie responds with, "You wanna tell that to the kids on Party of Five?".
The show, a drama aimed at the teenage market and set in San Francisco, centered on five siblings who grow up orphans after their parents were killed by a drunk driver in an auto accident. 24-year-old Charlie Salinger, the eldest sibling, became legal guardian to his four younger siblings: 16-year-old Bailey, 15-year-old Julia, 11-year-old Claudia, and infant Owen. The title of the show refers to the kids being seated as a party of five at their late father's restaurant.
