  • Episode Description
  • The Huxtables eagerly anticipate a visit from Cliff's great aunt Gramtee, who is coming to town to celebrate her 98th birthday. She embarrasses Cliff with stories about his childhood, and mesmerizes the children by sharing accounts of a relative who lived during times of slavery. Olivia is upset by the family's plans to attend church after Gramtee's birthday celebration, as a friend's parents had invited her to come to the zoo and Playland at the same time. She continually pleads with Denise to let her go to the zoo, but Denise stands her ground. Clair is impressed by Denise's resolve, but warns her to expect a tantrum. Olivia eventually talks to Gramtee, who tells her that she can make her own decision about whether to attend church. However, Olivia elects to go to church after all because she likes spending time with Gramtee.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Notes (1)

    • During the end credits, rather than hearing the season 6 ending music with the montage, you see the church choir singing.

    Trivia (2)

    • The pastor at the church mentions that Gramtee came all the way from Norfolk, Virginia. In real life, Minnie Gentry was born in Norfolk in 1915.

    • Even though her character was celebrating her 98th birthday, Minnie Gentry in reality was only 75 when this episode was filmed.
