Storyline

The Jeffersons and Willses are busy decorating the apartment in anticipation of Lionel and Jenny returning home from Japan. At first, all seems fine: Granddaughter Jessica is boasting about a "big surprise" that her parents are bringing for her, which (along with a letter from Jenny's doctor) leads everyone to believe that Jenny is pregnant. Then a subtle clue drops when Tom is reminded to save the real estate section from the newspaper, even though Lionel and Jenny live in a large house. Louise meets Lionel and Jenny at the elevator and is the first to hear their announcement: They've decided to file for divorce! The news devastates both the Jeffersons and Willises, but - after their children leave - it isn't long before a huge argument ensues, with both sides blaming the other for their children's crumbling marriage.
