Season Five (1978-1979)


October 2, 1978

Laura meets a new girl at school, Amelia, who has an overweight father she is ashamed of. Laura and some of the other students, not knowing the man is Amelia's father, make fun of him in front of her. When Laura discovers the truth she apologizes, but Amelia denies the man is her father. Her father finds out how ashamed she is of him, so he tells his family he is leaving to work on the railroad. He ends up taking refuge in the blind school. Laura still believes the man is really Amelia's father and when he is in an accident, Laura reveals her suspicions to her father. Charles then goes to the family to inform them of the accident. They rush to his aid, and Amelia tells her father how sorry she is.
