Episode Summary

EDIT
Theo wants to join his classmates on an archaeological dig in Egypt. However, he doesn't believe that his parents will give him the $1500 he needs for the trip. He spent all of his money repairing the damage caused by his unauthorized party and paying parking tickets. Howard and Lou try to convince the Huxtables that the trip will have a good influence on Theo and help him improve as a student. Cliff and Clair agree to consider the idea, but ask to talk to his professor so that they can learn more of the details. Professor Grayson eagerly agrees to this. During a discussion of the diverse ethnic backgrounds of the Egyptians, she encourages the students to guess her own heritage. Theo, Howard and Lou try to get Cliff to make a guess during the get-together with the professor. He fails miserably, even after she gives him several hints. Cliff and Clair agree to let Theo take the trip. Meanwhile, Clair tries to warn Kenny of the possible consequences of constantly repeating his brother's sexist opinions. However, he later gets into another war of words with Rudy.moreless
