Episode Summary

EDIT
Sondra and Elvin prepare for their housewarming party. They experience problems with the furnace and decide to move the party to the Huxtable house, much to Cliff's chagrin. Russell tells Cliff and Clair that he heard a rumor that Vanessa and Dabnis have set a wedding date. Cliff is very excited, as he really likes Dabnis and wants to have him fix stuff all the time. However, they instead tell Cliff and Clair that they have broken up. The couple asks that they keep this a secret, leading to many uncomfortable moments during the party as everyone welcomes Dabnis to the family. Vanessa confesses to her parents that she simply isn't ready to get married. Dabnis doesn't want to speak ill of Vanessa, but Cliff finally gets him to admit that he is annoyed by her habit of talking in convoluted metaphors instead of simply stating what is on her mind. Cliff is saddened by his impending separation from Dabnis, but does get him to repair Sondra and Elvin's furnace so that their family will get out of his house.moreless
