How much easier would your life be if you had a script to follow to resolve conflict? Dr. Phil's guests say they're at odds with a loved one, so he asks them to perform a unique experiment to see things from another perspective.



Trouble with Her Teen

Janet says she's worried by her 17-year-old daughter, Emily's, bad behavior. She says Emily curses at her, skips school, and one of their fights even turned physical! Emily admits that she can get out of line, but says her mom is a bitch.



Can mother and daughter stop arguing and learn to build a better relationship? 


Overweight and Unhappy

Jessica says she lacks confidence since gaining 60 pounds, and her husband, Tony's, sarcastic comments about her weight are pushing her to the edge. Tony says it's all good fun.


Will Dr. Phil's experiment help Tony develop compassion for his wife?
