The final season of Family Ties begins with the Keaton's camping trip turning into a comedy of errors ("It Happened One Night"). The good times don't last long when the family copes with Steven's heart attack and subsequent heart surgery in the 3-part "Heartstrings" episodes. Alex is forced to deal with change when Andy begins making new friends ("Truckers") and, later in the season, when he chooses between a friendship and his career ("The Job Not Taken"). The seventh season features four two-part episodes: in "All in the Neighborhood," the Keatons fight against bigotry in their own neighborhood. In "Wrap Around the Clock," Andy's time capsule revives some funny family memories and "They Can't Take That Away From Me" finds Alex having to choose between Lauren and a new love. Finally, in the series finale "Alex Doesn't Live Here Anymore," Alex bids a tearful goodbye to his family before moving to New York.
