The most annoying one, I thought was "Family Ties" finale. It had Alex leaving his family to go work on Wall Street. Big deal. Nothing else was resolved so what was the point of having one? Here's the one I would have had: Alex is frantically looking for a executive job after his (finally) fed-up parents tell him they're kicking him out as they are sick of all his constant put-downs and if he thinks he's SOO smart and they're not, he can support himself! In the finale, Stephen accepts a job of being a senior manager for a science and learning cable channel that's headquartered in the town. Elysse has been hired to restore the aging downtown warehouse district into a trendy contemporary pedistrian mall. Mallory has been hired by a top Paris fashion designer to become a full partner. She worries about leaving Nick but then it turns out that. . Nick has been commissioned to paint the Eiffel Tower with portraits of all the notable French from Charlemagne to Catherine Deneurve so that will take him a few years while Mallory gets established and, as they'll each be independently wealthy , they get married before the show ends before they jet to Paris. Jennifer gets a lucrative recording contract and is able to convince the studio to have her produce her own original songs right in her own home. Andrew reads up on the complete history of the U S and as a result declares to Alex that he is totally renouncing his "conservative" beliefs. So with all his family becoming phenomenally successful and <he> heading for homelessness and unemployment after a promising academic start, Alex decides to fly to NYC to interview with the only company to return his calls- the I H Conglomerate. He makes his desperate plea to the unseen CEO and President who gets him to accept $1000 a month at 60 hours a week <far> less than he originally thought acceptable and would have to work for much longer hours but as this is the <only> job Alex has gotten an offer on and he's due to be thrown out, he desperately accepts but then asks the CEO if he can recommend an affordable place for him to live. At which point the CEO turns around in his high-backed chair and props his feet on the desk and declares, "It's me ,Skippy! My real name is Irvin Handelman and while you and the rest were thinking I was a total loser, I've put together one of the top 20 companies in the nation! " "Skip-p-py? " Alex nervously stammers," Y-y-your in charge of the I H Conglomerate? " "That's right. And I'll let you stay at my 5th Avenue townhouse for $500 a month. You can't afford anywhere else on your salary! "
