Episode InfoEdit

Episode #25 - Season 2, Episode 3

First Aired: October 19, 1983

PlotEdit

Elyse goes to Parent/Teacher Conferences at Alex and Mallory's school with a very obnoxious teacher (played by Edward Edwards).  She has a physical confrontation with the teacher, so Steven has to go back the next day to clear things up (and a similar result occurs).  Steven and Elyse decide to invite Mr. Tedesco to dinner to settle their differences.

Funny MomentsEdit

  • Steven says, "Alex, that man would have made a killer out of Gandhi."
  • Alex gives his parents cue cards for what to say to Mr. Tedesco.  Steven: "Never has so cruel an attack been perpetrated on so innocent a victim."  Elyse: "Would that I could reverse the hands of time, I would.  I beg your forgiveness with all my heart and soul."

TriviaEdit

  • Parts of this episode are used as a flashback in "Return of the Native".
  • Alex's teacher Mr. Tedesco has a cousin who's on the faculty at Dartmouth.  Apparently, Alex is looking at other Ivy League schools besides Princeton (as we see in "Go Tigers".)  The events of this episode were Alex's turning point away from Darmouth and toward Princeton.
