Episode Summary

EDIT
Cliff and his friend Jim Harmon decide to become partners for the annual pinochle tournament, rather than continuing to play with their wives. They are certain that they will win the championship and take home the big trophy. Clair and Jim's wife Nicole elect to team up, much to their husbands' amusement. The men continually mock them. Clair and Nicole defeat the three-time defending champions, setting up a grudge match with Cliff and Jim. The women win easily without having to put up much of an effort, and Cliff and Jim are forced to settle for the pocket-size second place trophy. Meanwhile, Rudy convinces Martin to let her babysit Olivia while he and Denise are out of town. Despite Rudy's pleas, Olivia insists on staying up late to watch a horror movie. She becomes convinced that vampire/werewolves are going to descend upon them at any moment. Rudy tries to calm her, but becomes almost as terrified as Olivia after a storm begins creating strange noises. Cliff and Clair are amused to come home to a booby-trapped house, and find the girls sleeping on their bed while surrounded by cloves of garlic.moreless
