Episode Summary

EDIT
The Huxtables host a large gathering for Thanksgiving dinner. Cliff must go to the market in the midst of a terrible storm to gather ingredients for the meal. Unfortunately, he keeps forgetting items on his list and getting sent back out into the rain. Martin's ex-wife, Paula, calls from the airport during a long layover. Denise invites her to join the family for Thanksgiving so that she can spend time with Olivia. Martin feels uncomfortable about the situation, but Denise assures him that everything will be fine. Paula and Denise have a talk while Martin helps Olivia prepare a gift for her mom. Paula explains why she ended her marriage. She had always made decisions based on what her parents wanted, and could no longer stand it. Although it was painful, she felt that she needed to live her own life.moreless

  • Clair was mean

    4.0
    Just saw this episode again and while all the other characters were at their best, Clair was just plain mean in this one. Cliff went all the way out to a store 20 miles away in the rain and lightning, and then she still complains and sends him back out there again and again because he forgot certain ingredients. Surely they could've gone without certain foods rather than have him keep going out there risking being hit by lightning. She was just cruel in this episode. That being said, the rest of the episode was good with the other characters and everything, but Clair certainly put a damper on this one.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • At one point, Lisa Bonet slips and says, "Paula! I want you to meet Olivia's mother."

      No, she says "This is Paula. This is Olivia's mother."

    • Maybe she had just enough eggs to make the eggnog, but not the cornbread...

    • Clair pitches a huge fit about needing nutmeg for eggnog, then mentions they need eggs for cornbread. Has she forgotten that eggs are needed to make eggnog, too? That's why it's called EGG nog! How big a batch of cornbread is she making if she needs the entire dozen eggs to do so, which is the way she's making it sound? I use maybe one or two when I mix a box of cornbread mix together, and that usually makes a pan of 12-16 slices.

    • When Cliff returns from the store for about the fourth time and the eggs and tomatoes fall out of the soggy wet bag onto the floor, why aren't the eggs in a carton? The bottom of the bag drops out, so the carton can't be in the bag.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (Cliff has spent the entire day going back and forth to the store in the rain. Russell starts to say Grace before the meal.)
      Russell: Heavenly Father...
      Cliff: You got that right!
