Summary:

In “Clooney,” Jack and Rebecca take the triplets to the mall to get suits and dresses for the winter formal. Kate is at her thinnest and fits into the dress she wants, but she’s still unhappy with her body image. Present day Kate goes wedding dress shopping with Madison from her support group and discovers Madison is struggling with bulimia. After rehab, Kevin lives with Rebecca and starts working through his feelings about her marriage to Miguel after Jack’s death. Randall picks up a box from William’s old apartment building and discovers a secret. He brings Beth to the rundown apartment building and tells her he wants to buy, renovate and manage it together.

In “Clooney,” Jack tells his young sons to own their life choices. He also provides an example of selflessness. As adults, the triplets can be seen taking this advice to heart as they mature and work through their doubts and shortcomings. The “Clooney” episode promotes love, gratitude and being selfless, but it has a reference to bisexuality and eating disorders, brief foul language, and addresses the issue of grief. So, strong caution is advised.
