Episode InfoEdit

Episode #93 - Season 5, Episode 3

First Aired: October 9, 1986


Steven's lawyer has suggested that he and Elyse write their wills.  Elyse is away at a convention, and Alex wants to get involved in the financial planning for the future.  Mallory and Margaret Hobbs (played by Julie Harris) work on a sociology project together.  Mallory is uncomfortable because Margaret is older, and she'd rather be partnered with a younger, snobbier girl.  Mallory gets Skippy to switch partners with her (and Margaret quits the class because of this).
