Leave It to Willie is the fifth episode of the second season of The Hogan Family, and the fifteenth episode overall.
Starring: Valerie Harper (Valerie Hogan), Jason Bateman (David Hogan), Danny Ponce (Willie Hogan), Jeremy Licht (Mark Hogan)
and Josh Taylor (Michael Hogan) (credit only)
Guest Starring: Jadrien Steele (Max), Ken Lerner (Officer Chazin), Tom Hodges (Rich), Daniel Trent (The Father)
Co-Starring: Dick Billingsley (Bobby), Matthew Licht (Chubby)
A sly satire on the "happy-ending-in-30-minutes" formula typical of situation comedies, the main plot centers on Willie taking the family car without permission, getting involved in a hit-and-run accident, and leaving David to take the blame when Valerie questions him.
