Episode Quotes

Cliff: [Clair found a joint in Theo's book and jumps to conclusions] We don't even know if it is Theo's and you're already sending the boy to Turkey.
Theo: This is my dad.
Anthony Braxton: Hello, Mr. Huxtable.
Theo: Dr. Huxtable! Dad, this is Anthony Braxton.
Cliff: What name do you really go by?
Anthony Braxton: I'm The Enforcer.
Cliff: I'm The Dad!
Vanessa: [trying to find out why Theo is in trouble] Theo left early for school today. He seemed to be in a hurry.
Cliff: Oh, yeah?
Vanessa: It's a shame what happened.
Cliff: Yeah.
Vanessa: And to think it would happen in *this* house!
Cliff: That was the part that bothered me the most.
Vanessa: What did you say to Theo when you found out?
Cliff: Well, you know me... so, that's what I said.
Vanessa: And what did Theo say?
Cliff: The only thing he could say.
Vanessa: Oh.
Cliff: What would *you* have done in that situation?
Vanessa: I would have had him come to me!
Cliff: Well, I thought about that but I know how much you don't like to get into other people's business.
Vanessa: [sighs] Yeah.
Cliff: Have a good day at school, dear.


  • Goof (revealing mistake): In the scene where Mrs. Montgomery asks for the sex of her baby, Dr. Huxtable opens the book to reveal the sex, and when she jumps up and puts her hand on the book and says, "Forget it," she turns her head because she is laughing too hard.
