Episode Summary

EDIT
Clair buys a new couch, and tries to have the old one taken away to Sondra and Elvin's apartment while Cliff is busy with a patient. Cliff uncovers her plans and refuses to allow the movers to take the couch. Clair is asked to appear on a local television show that includes discussions of important historical issues. The other panelists are ill-prepared, constantly bicker, and refuse to take Clair's opinions seriously. When she produces evidence that exposes a mistake in one man's argument about the causes of the Great Depression, the men ignore her. The host calls for a commercial break and demands that she be removed from the show. The men only want her to discuss issues directly related to women or African-Americans, but she refuses to be stifled. The producer is thrilled by the show and asks Clair to be a regular. She turns down the offer because she doesn't want to wake up at 4:30 in the morning every week just to prove herself to foolish, petty men. She takes the family to church instead of watching the show on TV. Clair convinces Cliff to let go of the couch, and he actually asks for time alone to say goodbye to it.moreless
