  • Episode Description
  • Vanessa discovers that Rudy has a crush on one of her classmates, Clarence, and teases her about it. Rudy's teacher, Mrs. McGee, teaches the class a series of lessons on etiquette. Clarence eagerly volunteers to sit beside Rudy during a demonstration on dinner table manners, and they stare at each other lovingly. Clarence's friends get on his case, and force him to prove that he doesn't like Rudy by harassing her. Rudy and her girlfriends go to the Huxtable house and rant about how stupid the boys are. They go to the mall and ignore them, and continue this behavior the next day. When Rudy comes back after school to retrieve a book, Clarence knocks her books out of her hands and shoves her. Mrs. McGee catches Rudy beating up Clarence, and orders the two to be partners at the dance that is to conclude the etiquette lesson the next day. Cliff tries to counsel Rudy on why ten-year-old boys behave the way the do, but only confuses her. The boys and girls, not surprisingly, are reluctant to socialize at the dance. Kenny has to dance with Mrs. McGee after he cannot find a partner.moreless
