Episode Recap

Cliff is completely worn out after being on-call at the hospital for 22 consecutive days. Clair convinces him to take two days off and just relax at home. She promises to get the kids to leave him alone, and even allows him to stray from his diet. He spends all of his time on the couch, eating hoagies and watching old movies on TV. Clair receives an office visit from her friend Diane Hemmings, a successful entertainment reporter. Diane admits that she is thinking of ending her marriage because her husband doesn't trust her at all. Clair arranges a meeting between Diane and her husband, Richard. Richard says that he misses Diane when she travels, but doesn't think she feels the same way because she seems happy in her reports. He worries that she will be whisked away by one of her celebrity interview subjects. Diane assures him that she would never do anything to jeopardize their marriage, and they agree to go to counseling. Theo wins a pair of bets from Vanessa and Rudy after he is able to solve riddles. They eventually have the last laugh, and end up winning a bet with Cliff over a riddle.
