Clair Hanks Huxtable: For all I know, you are lying right now. GO TO BED!
Vanessa Huxtable: Mom...
Clair Hanks Huxtable: SHUT UP! Because I know what was going on! You were off being wild and free with the Wretched and singing the Wretched song!

Vanessa Huxtable: But I'd like my punishment before I go to bed.
Dr. Heathcliff 'Cliff' Huxtable: Do yourself a favor and go to bed.
