Episode Summary

EDIT
Cliff prepares to take on rival Jim Harmon in an auction for an original copy of Charlie Parker's Night in Tunisia. He volunteers to drive Olivia to preschool so that Denise can complete a paper. However, Denise had forgotten that she is supposed to watch the preschool class all day. The teacher insists that Cliff must take her place if she does not show up. Denise offers to come down, but Cliff takes the assignment because he does not want Denise to lose her newfound dedication to her studies. He calls the auction house and arranges to place bids over the phone. He beats out Harmon, and is on the verge of winning the recording when a late arrival enters the bidding. Clair inadvertently bids against Cliff and drives up the price. Even after Cliff bows out, the overly enthusiastic man at the phones continues to shout out bids. His error is eventually revealed, and Clair wins the record for $450 (only $150 more than what Cliff would have paid!).moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The drinking glasses that Cliff uses in the kitchen to drink orange juice while talking to Clair and Harmon are also used in the later series Cosby. They are better seen in the episode Florida when Ruth is sitting in the kitchen with the dog.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (2)

      • This was a bit of a reunion between Cosby and Marge Redmond. In the 1970s, he was the commercial spokesman for Jello and she was for Cool Whip. They did at least one ad together.

      • Sabrina LeBeauf, Geoffrey Owens, Joseph C. Phillips, Tempestt Bledsoe, Keshia Knight Pulliam and Erika Alexander do not appear in this episode.
