Episode Summary

EDIT
Despite the family's best efforts, Cliff learns that his friend Jake is holding a sale at his appliance store. Clair tries to convince Jake not to sell Cliff a power sander, as she is afraid that he will become obsessed with sanding the entire house. Cliff inadvertently sets Jake off on a rant about an incident from ten years earlier, in which Jake's best friend Stanley forced him to pay for car repairs after a traffic accident that Jake insists he did not cause. Jake's daughter Cookie sets up a meeting with Cliff to introduce him to her fiancé, Jonathan, who is Stanley's son. They have been seeing each other secretly for almost a year to avoid their fathers' wrath. Although they will marry even without their fathers' approval, they plead with Cliff to serve as a mediator between the men. Jake behaves very stubbornly, but Stanley proves to be more reasonable. Not wishing to miss his son's wedding, he admits that he caused the crash when he absent-mindedly backed up his car. He had argued with his wife, and wanted to return home to apologize. He denied blame for the accident because Jake hurt his feelings by screaming at him. The men apologize for their behavior and renew their friendship.moreless
