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).
- To help Steven with the will, Alex gets him the book Burying Your Parents for Profit.
- Skippy's comments about the conversations he has with his aunt.
- Mallory calls her partner "Margaret Hobbs", but the credits call her "Margaret Hollings".
- Meredith Baxter Birney does not appear in this episode.
