Clair: Will the two of you please take my foot someplace else and leave me alone? Cliff: Okay. You want to take it to school and show it to your friends?

(Mockingly sneers at Russell before moving to hug him) Cliff: Come on dear. Let's go to dinner.

  • Cliff: That's it. You're going to the emergency room. Clair: What if they tell me it's broken? Cliff: If no one tells you it's broken, and it is broken, how will you know it's broken?

  • The made-up word "zrbtt" began in this episode when Rudy was teasing Vanessa during her studying. It was used other times in the the future to mean that sort of "wet kiss" that the Huxtables gave (e.g. Rudy and Cliff).
