Episode Summary

EDIT
Sondra grows frustrated with staying home to care for the twins all day while Elvin is at medical school. She notes that he only spends a few minutes with them at night before leaving the room to study. Although she is exhausted, Sondra wants to keep a dinner date at her parents' house because she longs for adult conversation. Everyone ignores her as they coo over the babies or ask Elvin about medical school. Elvin tries to change the topic to get Sondra included in the conversation, to no avail. However, Clair, Mrs. Tibideaux and Anna notice Sondra's mood and encourage her to have some dessert and express what is bothering her. They can all sympathize with her plight, and realize that she has things even tougher because she has twins. She vents about Elvin's lack of sensitivity, and vows to be just as rude when he cares for the kids while she is in law school. Cliff realizes that the women are getting worked up about something, and blames Elvin. The men try to give him tips on helping out without appearing to question Sondra's judgment. Cliff tells a story about taking Sondra and Denise fishing because Clair needed a break. Clair tells the same story, but learns from Anna that Cliff left the girls at her house all weekend. Everyone is appalled by his behavior, and Sondra comes to appreciate Elvin.moreless
