Episode Summary

EDIT
Rudy and her friends have a video-watching party. They are annoyed because Cliff always forces them to watch "Old Yeller" and "Treasure Island." When Cliff leaves the room, Kenny slips in a copy of a comedy called "The Gross-Out Gang." Clair comes home early and is offended. She stops the kids from watching. Rudy is upset that she has to follow so many rules, while Vanessa can even stay out late on school nights. She presents a list of her grievances to her parents. Clair is very impressed, and she and Cliff agree to rescind one of the rules. They tell Rudy that she can stay up as late as she wants, but must get up in time for school. Rudy stays up half the night and winds up tired and cranky at school, leading to complaints from her teacher. Rudy reveals to Vanessa that Kenny told her that the family is just setting her up to fail. Cliff tells Rudy that he is going to stay up all night and watch movies with her. Determined to prove herself, Rudy shows up in the living room as scheduled. However, she immediately falls asleep.moreless
