  • Episode Description
  • Cliff prepares to receive the Physician of the Year award. The entire family gets dressed up, and Cliff teaches Theo how to shave for the occasion. Just as the Huxtables are about to leave, Cliff receives a phone call from a woman who has gone into labor. As she is a first-time mother, he decides to go to the hospital to reassure her, rather than sending a substitute. The woman turns out to be much closer to delivery than Cliff had anticipated, and he must miss the ceremony. He has Theo read his speech and accept the award on his behalf.moreless

    • Cliff: (to Theo) You still waiting for Denise to come out of that bathroom?
      Theo: It's not fair, Dad.
      Cliff: What do you mean fair, son? There's 2 men living the house with 4 women. We're lucky we have a gas station on the corner.

    Notes (1)

    • The presenter frequently calls Theo "Rudy," mixing up Cliff's only son with his youngest daughter. This could be an inside joke, as the part of the youngest Huxtable was intitially intended for a boy.

    Trivia (1)

    • The scene where Clair puts the flower on Theo's lapel took numerous takes, according to Phylicia Rashad. In "The Cosby Show: A Look Back" documentary, you can see some of these bloopers.
