Episode Quotes

Cliff: [looks at something Vanessa's cooking] Smells good, looks almost done, what is it?
Vanessa Huxtable: Coffee.
Vanessa Huxtable: I was just hurrying her along.
Cliff: That's fine, she's only five years old right now but she IS going to grow up and she may get into body building. And then track you down and say 'remember all the times you pushed me around?' and clean your clock.
Cliff: [to Vanessa] Do you have a night job that I don't know about, or are you a truck driver? What're you doing with coffee?
