    • QUOTES (3)

      • Cliff: I don't understand why it is that you get to rant and rave and I'm the one that has to be calm.
        Clair: Because, Cliff, that is my baby in there!
        Cliff: Well, that's my baby, too!
        Clair: No, Cliff, you did not have that child. I had that child. I was the one who was lying on that table screaming "take it out." And if it takes the last breath in my body, Sondra IS going to become a lawyer!

      • Clair: But you've always wanted to be a lawyer, you've talked about nothing else!
        Sondra: I've changed my mind.
        Clair: CHANGE IT BACK! After all that money we sent sending you to Princeton? Sondra, you owe us 79,648 dollars and 22 cents, and I want my money NOW!

      • (Clair slams the apartment door, shaking the diplomas off the wall.)
        Cliff: These are your degrees from Princeton.
        Elvin: Yes.
        Cliff: Fell down.
        Elvin: Yes.
        Cliff: Rather symbolic, don't you think?

    • NOTES (5)

      • The opening theme has Bill Cosby show a picture of Lisa Bonet but she is not credited as a star; thus indicating that Denise is still away at college.

      • Lisa Bonet now stars in A Different World, a spin-off of The Cosby Show. A Different World shows Denise's college years.

      • Now the opening sequence features the cast dancing happily to vocal funk/jazz in a grey room. The Cosby Show logo is the same as seasons 2 and 3.

      • In an interview with TV Guide, Tempestt Bledsoe named this episode as one of her favorites--despite the fact that she makes only a brief appearance--because she got to wear a jacket belonging to pop star Prince.

      • Geoffrey Owens has become a regular cast member.
