Episode Summary

EDIT
Cliff and Clair go to Sondra and Elvin's apartment for dinner. They are disgusted by the brown water, jammed windows, and major plumbing and electrical problems. Sondra and Elvin, however, cheerfully announce their plans to make a "room" for the baby by putting up a screen in the corner. Cliff and Clair order them to call the landlord, who shows up quickly after Clair has Elvin tell him that she is an attorney. He quickly has someone page him so that he can leave without having to do any repairs or answer any questions. Cliff and Clair insist that a child should not be raised in such conditions. They offer the Tibideauxs some money to help find a better place, but they angrily refuse. Anna reminds Cliff that he was just as stubborn as Sondra when he was her age. Denise visits Sondra and Elvin and convinces them that a move would be in the baby's best interests. They agree to borrow some money from Cliff and Clair, and Theo finds a listing for an affordable apartment that isn't a dump. A newlywed couple takes the old apartment and inquires about the furniture. Cliff offers it to them for ten dollars.moreless

      • Denise: I'm not putting down your apartment. It's wonderful! It's got character, it's charming, But c'mon, you can't act like children for the rest of your lives. It's time for you to grow up.
        Sondra: Oh, who are you telling to grow up? You dropped out of school and then when Mom and Dad wanted you to go back, you wouldn't even listen to them.
        Denise: Sondra, that is because in my case Mom and Dad didn't make any sense, okay? They know what they're talking about. Come on! You guys are having a baby! A little bambino, another life. Would you actually consider raising a kid in...this...place?!?
        Elvin: Look Denise, as long as we love this child, it doesn't matter where we raise it.
        Denise: Please, as soon as this kid can talk, it's gonna say "Call me a taxi, I'm outta here!"
