Episode Quotes

Clair Hanks Huxtable: [discussing a civil rights sit-in near Hillman campus] I went back to see Professor Capel after that class. I wanted to talk about that lunch counter. I wanted to know how is it that people could hate like that? And I figured, if anybody had the answer, certainly it would be a professor of philosophy. In all the time that I knew her, it was the only time she did not have an answer. But, she did say something to me that I have cherished to this day, which is why I volunteered to organize this dinner.
Leah: What was that?
Clair Hanks Huxtable: She told me I was her favorite student.
Leah: That's lovely, Clair. [gestures to herself] Because, she told me I was her favorite student.
Baathie Ndiaie: Same thing.
Millicent: She told me I was her very favorite student, and she gave me a C.
Maxine: I got you there; she gave me an S! And, she told me that I was her most favorite student!
