Episode Quotes

Cliff: [trying to trick the kids into waking up] Last day of school! [nothing happens]
Clair Hanks Huxtable: [discussing who should wake the children up on this first day of school] Cliff it's you're turn. I got them up on the last day of school
Cliff: The last day of school? All you did was go out into the hallway and yell "LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!" and children next door were jumping out of bed.
Cliff: [noticing the short sleeve sweatshirt that Theo's wearing] Son?
Theodore 'Theo' Huxtable: Yeah, dad?
Cliff: Is that the shirt that I bought for you?
Theodore 'Theo' Huxtable: Yep.
Cliff: Well, didn't it have sleeves on it when we bought it?
Theodore 'Theo' Huxtable: Oh yeah, they're upstairs.
Cliff: Oh, the sleeves didn't want to come down this morning?
Theodore 'Theo' Huxtable: No, you see dad, I cut 'em off. This is how everybody's wearing it this year.
Cliff: Son, when we went to the store, you picked up that shirt and said "Dad. I gotta have this shirt for the first day of school." And I looked at the price of it, and I said "This is very expensive for a sweatshirt". Then I looked in those brown eyes of yours and I said "Well, my son wants it, and I'll buy it for him." Now if fashion dictates that you cut those sleeves off, make some alterations, that's fine with me. But somehow, some way, in this lifetime, you're going to wear those sleeves.
