Episode Quotes
Vanessa: Dad, Denise pushed us out of the bathroom, so the soap's in Rudy's eyes and she wouldn't let me rinse out the shampoo like Mom said and now Rudy might be blinded for life! If she is, can we get a dog?

Episode Goofs
Cliff asked Clair how they ended up having 4 kids. But they actually have 5 kids. Sondra, their oldest child, appears a few episodes later.

Cliff: Take the glasses off!
(Denise takes them off, revealing weird make up on the side of her face)
Cliff: Put the glasses back on!

Clair: I love living in this house; coming in third after your patients and a dead fish.
Cliff: But just think, honey, after the fish goes, you move up to second.
