Whilst having a recent discussion over the proper usage of "implied vs. inferred," i told a friend i was relatively positive i had learned that lesson from an episode of Family Ties. Alas and alack, i cannot seem to successfully Google said episode. I seem to recall it being a conversation between Alex and Elyse, but it's a fuzzy memory, at best. Does this ring a bell w/ anyone? If somebody could point me towards the correct episode (or tell me i'm making the entire thing up in my head), i promise to avenge your death when/if the time comes.
