Episode Summary

EDIT
Sondra and Elvin make plans to have dinner with his old friend from college and her sister. However, Sondra decides to stay home because she is preoccupied with her personal statement essay for law school applications. Elvin offers to cancel, but she encourages him to go out and have a good time. He promises to return by 9:30 to take babysitters Vanessa and Rudy back home. He calls from the restaurant to tell Sondra that he might be late, and she encourages him to stay out. When Elvin returns home, Sondra is furious that she had to interrupt work on her essay to drive her sisters home. She acts cordial toward Elvin's guests, but refuses to speak to Elvin after they leave. She is especially upset that he paid for dinner. They have dinner with Cliff and Clair the next day. Cliff gives Elvin advice on being psychic so that he will know how to keep from upsetting his wife. Clair sympathizes with Sondra, but points out that she could have avoided the whole fiasco by being honest with Elvin. They eventually make up. Vanessa and Rudy get hooked on old movies. They become too caught up in the films and fear that Sondra is going to kill Elvin in a jealous rage.moreless

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • When Elvin asks Theo if he was ever just friends with an attractive girl, Theo says that he was, but it wasn't his choice. What about the girl he was seen with during Season 4's "Home for the Weekend?" Theo asserted that she was just his friend.

      • This episode marks the last time we see Sondra and Elvin's apartment in Greenwich Village.

      • Goof: At the end of this episode, Vanessa and Rudy are worried Sondra will fix the brakes in Elvin's car to go out when he's driving alone, as Humphrey Bogart did to his wife in the movie "Conflict". However, in "Conflict", Bogart's character killed his wife before fixing her car to go off the mountain.

      • If this girl went to college with Elvin, then how come Sondra doesn't know her? After all it was pretty much established during the third season that Sondra and Elvin went to college together.
