After accepting Oprah's challenge, Pam and her family watch producers confiscate every gadget and gizmo in the home. "Everybody went to sleep early because there wasn't anything to do," Pam says.

"We're trying to be a family again, and we're going to keep trying and trying until we get it right," Ron says.
