  • Episode Description
  • Clair becomes fed up with the pressures of her job and the constant demands of the children. Cliff decrees that evening to be "You're Not a Mother Night." He takes her out to dinner and rents a room at the Biltmore for the night, leaving Denise to look after the other kids. Theo handles a call from a patient very well and gives her the number of another doctor. As a joke, the kids call up their parents' hotel room and warn them not to have another baby.moreless
