  • Make Obama Proud

    Mislabeled on my library DVD copy switched with No More Mr. Nice Guy. Somebody goofed up!

    This episodes comments heavily on the fact that if you come from a poor socio-economic background you're pretty much screwed if you aim for college regardless of your grades. Even though this aired in 1991 still relevant today as tuition skyrockets and young men both black and white have pretty much given up any pursuit of furthering their education and making something of themselves leaving the women to obtain the bachelor's degrees.

    So it is with Pam and her BF. They study hard but know how to have fun too. The boys rib them for getting good grades and tell Pam she'll never afford college unless she can get her rich Huxtable guardians to foot the bill. The boys brag about the blue collar jobs they plan to get after high school that won't require any hard work or study. A female teacher overhears and points out the error of their thinking. As President Obama tells these same kids today, you still have to study and do well in school if you want to get anywhere in life.

    Ends with Pam admitting to Cliff and Clair that she's really content in her new upper middle class lifestyle that she really likes them and is glad to be living "witchyouall"
