Episode Summary

Danielle comes to the house and shows off her new shirt. Rudy and Kim decide that they must buy identical shirts while they are still available, but Rudy doesn't have enough money. She searches her room, but comes up $2.30 short. Kenny offers to give her the money in exchange for the autographed Magic Johnson poster that Cliff had given her. He doesn't have any money at the moment, but says that his brother owes him money and will be getting his paycheck that night. Rudy decides to ask Clair for an advance in her allowance in the meantime. Unfortunately, Vanessa first approaches Clair and tries to demand a raise in her allowance (which she feels her parents "owe" her). Clair becomes angry and says that she's not giving out any more money, so Rudy keeps quiet. She swipes some of the money that Clair had left out for the dry cleaners. Clair drives herself crazy tearing apart the house while looking for the missing cash. Kenny tells Rudy that his brother couldn't come up with the money, so she turns to Theo for help. Cliff makes the connection and realizes that Rudy took the money. He advises her to come clean with Clair. Clair is relieved that she isn't losing her mind and misplacing things. She scolds the guilt-ridden Rudy for taking the money, but goes easy on her because she seems to have learned her lesson. Cliff realizes that Kenny lied about getting money from his brother so that he could stake a claim on Rudy's poster. Cliff accompanies Kenny to his house to get it back.moreless
