  • Episode Description
  • Cliff goes out bowling with his father, Elvin and some friends. Everyone makes fun of him after his terrible play causes their team to lose. Cliff takes everyone back to the house for Chinese food. Cliff, Russell and former Negro League players Frank Potter and Joe Simms sit around telling baseball stories. Jim Harmon and his friend Carleton become extremely bored. They get their revenge on Cliff by forcing him to listen to cricket stories. After Cliff puts down the sport, they challenge him to a cricket game in the living room. The game ends abruptly when Clair returns home. As a prank, Rudy has Olivia memorize all the answers from a TV quiz show so that she can trick her parents into believing that Olivia is an amazing child prodigy.moreless
