Cliff and his neighbor Jeffrey Engels supervise Olivia's class on a field trip to the Natural History Museum, but Jeffrey's high-brow explanations confuse the kids. Cliff seizes the opportunity to impress them with his colorful storytelling, but his description about the grizzly bear is so vivid, the kids scatters in terror.

Meanwhile, Theo organizes a fundraiser for the community center where he plans to put messages on T-shirts and sell them at street fairs, but the shirts don't have neck holes. Theo hopes to handle the situation himself, but Clair eventually steps in to save the day with her legal expertise.
