  • Rudy's goldfish dies and the family gathers to pay their respects.

    Another great episode, Rudy’s goldfish dies and Cliff decides the family should pay their respects to the fish that’s gone by-bye.

    Cliff calls the family together and requests that everyone dress up for the ‘official fish funeral’.

    It’s a funny episode that gathers laughs while at the same time – warrants how sometimes life isn’t all that complicated to a child. Cliff thought he was doing the right parental thing with a funeral because Rudy was attached to her goldfish – but as with all wounds, time was all Rudy needed to overcome the brief bout of sorrow – not a fish funeral.
