Plot[edit | edit source]

As the episode opens, Steven is hanging a banner in the living room: "Ban the Bomb".  Alex takes offense with the message (and the lifestyle his parents used to espouse).  Steven's friend Matt (played by Sanford Jensen), from the Berkeley days, comes for a visit.  He suggests starting up the publication of their old political magazine.  While he considers this, he flashes back to the Berkeley days.  Steven decides to have a go at the magazine, but the team doesn't synch like they once did.

Funny Moments[edit | edit source]

  • Alex's ears perk up when he finds out Matt wrote books about economics, that is, until Elyse tells him the titles are Capitalism - Don't Make Me Laugh and Capitalism - Don't Make Me Laugh - Part Two.
  • Despite his mother telling him he could not watch Wall $treet Week, Andrew calls Alex to the TV because gold closed up at $415.  Alex does an awesome double-take about the whole thing.
  • Once working on the magazine, Steven starts taking some strong stances: 1) all aluminum will be recycled; 2) no English muffins while the British are occupying Northern Ireland (to which Jennifer has a great response).
