  • Episode Description
  • Sondra comes down with strep throat. Clair is appalled to learn that Cliff simply told her to wear a mask around the twins. She fears that the babies will get sick, and calls on Elvin's mother to accompany her to the Tibideauxs' apartment and get the kids out of harm's way. They try to convince Sondra to rest, and she finally agrees that it is a good idea for them to take the babies. However, Elvin comes home and gets her worked up by suggesting that Clair and Francine were just looking for an excuse to spend more time with their grandkids. Sondra becomes hysterical and forces Elvin to drive her to her parents' house, where she accosts Cliff and Theo. She starts ranting and raving, before taking off again in search of the kids. Clair and Francine bring the babies to the house after taking them to the mall and the hair salon. Sondra returns and accosts them. She has Elvin collect the kids, and warns the grandmothers never to attempt such a stunt again. Cliff teases Clair about the incident.moreless

    • Elvin: Honey, look around! I mean there's hardly anything left. The only thing that's left is the babies' football. Sondra: Now that you mention it, they were very persistent. In fact, every time I tried to get up, they shoved me back down. And then you should have seen their faces when they got their hands on those babies. They were cackeling! Elvin, our mothers stole our babies!

    • (After Sondra goes upstairs to find her babies) Clair: (to Francine) Do you think it's safe to move now? Cliff: (to Clair) Do you feel lucky?!
