Episode Summary

Cliff and Clair are thrilled when Theo is accepted to graduate school. They agree to continue paying his tuition. Theo and a friend attend a corporation's recruiting dinner for the sole purpose of filling up on free food. However, an executive is impressed with Theo's off-hand comment about the corporation's philosophy. He is offered the chance to fly to San Francisco and interview for a position that would pay $30,000 a year. He excitedly tells Cliff and Clair that the job would allow him to become the first one of their kids to stop sponging off of them. Although they often tease him, they assure him that they do not think of him that way. They consider paying for his tuition an investment in his future. Eugene, one of the kids from the community center, is upset to learn that Theo may take a job and leave them. However, Theo insists that he is merely keeping his options open. Meanwhile, Clair tries to stifle Cliff's habit of stealing the remote control while she is watching a program.moreless
