Episode Summary

EDIT
Sondra sues an auto mechanic after he charges her for services that he did not perform. Clair becomes angry when her colleague tries to settle the case, and insists on taking over. Cliff asks the children to take over the household chores as Clair spends all of her time preparing for the trial. The family must also endure Cliff's cooking, which seems delicious until he reveals the ingredients. Clair grills the mechanic on the stand and proves that he billed Sondra for a new engine when he had actually repaired the original engine. Cliff leaves a courtroom spectator bewildered by pretending that he and Clair are strangers and approaching her for a date during the recess.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • David Langston Smyrl later appears as Chester in "Mr. Quiet" and as Sam Lucas in recurring episodes of seasons two and three. Here, he portrays a noisy courtroom observer.

    • Once Clair finds out what the meal Cliff prepared was, she says she's going upstairs to get some of Theo's sandwich. Theo's sandwich has anchovies in it, and we later find out that Clair really hates anchovies.

    • In the court scene, Clair asks the mechanic about the engine's serial numbers and it is proved that had lied, Sondra asks, "What does all this mean?" How could Sondra not know what her mother's game plan was? Wouldn't she have told her as soon as she found out the serial number was fake? Maybe she wanted to keep Sondra in suspense.
