Bill decides to send Cissy to Bryerfield School in Connecticut, a private school for girls. Cissy would rather go to Lexi High, which is a couple of blocks away from home, but thinks Bill wants her "out of his hair" so she reluctantly agrees. Buffy and Jody miss her and plan to have a classmate's father who is a cab driver take them to "Kenny-cut" (Connecticut). They then tell Bill of their plans and he realizes that Cissy would be better off at home. The highlight is Bill escorting Cissy for a night out with dinner at "21", a Broadway show and a nightclub.
