Storyline

Cliff and Clair are seriously happy that the school year is starting because they've had enough of their kids all summer. Cliff gets the difficult task of waking up Theo and Denise, and telling Rudy to change into something different, while Vanessa can't make a simple clothing choice. Things don't get much better when the kids get home from school because they have their own issues. They also annoy their parents by yelling at each other through the house. Written by happipuppi13

[the phone rings]
Cliff: Oh, not another Vanessa caller.
[Answers]
Cliff: Vanessa's Residence? No, she cannot come to the phone right now. Because it is now 10:05, and she cannot take any calls past 10 o'clock. No, I cannot take a message. I am her father. I am a doctor. I graduated from medical school, alright? Thank you for calling, this is a live voice.
