Episode Summary

EDIT
Sondra and Elvin come by the house for a visit. Elvin is certain that Sondra is about to go into labor, while she insists that he is overreacting. She tells Clair that Elvin has rushed her to the hospital three times, only to be told that it was a false alarm each time. However, she has another contraction in the kitchen, and Cliff declares that it is time for her to go to the hospital. Elvin begins to panic and initially drives off without her. Sondra and Elvin ask Cliff and Clair to stay home, but they begin to go crazy as they await news. They decide to go to the hospital, and Sondra and Elvin are grateful. Elvin begins to hyperventilate, while Cliff forgets that Sondra is not his patient and instinctively takes over. Clair asks the men to go into the waiting area. Cliff tries to calm Elvin until it is time for him to rejoin Sondra for the delivery. Meanwhile, Theo and Justine study at the house with Howard, a brilliant student from their philosophy class. Howard's girlfriend, Julia, joins the group. Justine notes that Theo seems attracted to her. Kenny hangs out with the foursome while waiting for Rudy. Julia and Justine decry the lack of women in the field of philosophy. They discuss society's attitudes toward women, and are disgusted to find that Kenny already has very sexist views.moreless
