The Stewarts Settle In

 Evan and Carlin

"I don't even know how to cook. How am I supposed to know how to set this stuff up?"
-Carlin Bates (now Carlin Stewart)

In TV time, the wedding countdown has begun, and Carlin and Evan are rushing to get their house set up before the big day. But they have already received a ton of gifts, and finding places for all their new belongings proves to be a more difficult task than they had imagined.
