The family prepares for Theo's college graduation. Although each graduate is only allowed two tickets, Theo manages to get a hold of ten more tickets. Cliff continues to invite more people, invoking memories of the disaster at Sondra's Princeton graduation, which found him inviting an extra 23 people and setting them up with lawn chairs on the roof of the motel. Vanessa brings Dabnis to the event, but they claim that they are only friends. Olivia prepares to move to Singapore to stay with Denise and Martin. Theo will be accompanying her on the trip as his graduation present. Clair tries to ease Theo's worries about his father's behavior. She says that it is impossible for Cliff to hold back his enthusiasm, as they are both so proud to see a son who once struggled to pass his high school courses become a college graduate.
