Trivia

FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • Obviously a plot device so Denise would stay in New York, the "not getting Naval housing" was a bit contrived. If there really were no quarters available on the Newport Naval Base, the Navy would have given Martin and Denise an adequate housing allowance so they could live off-base in an adjacent city in Rhode Island.

    • Rudy and Vanessa are preparing to go to the mall and ask Olivia if she wants to come. She says yes but changes her mind when Cliff comes home from the hospital and she decides to stay with him. What I want to know is who was going to look after Olivia if Rudy and Vanessa didn't ask her to go to the mall. They MUST have been in charge of her because they said no one else was going to be home and Cliff could relax in peace.

    • Not exactly a goof, but when Martin explains to Cliff that he, Denise, and Olivia will have to live there another 6 months, he says, "But I insist on paying you full rent," which Cliff refuses. We know Martin is bluffing, because if he were really willing and able to pay full rent, he'd get his family an apartment of their own instead of continuing to impose on Cliff.

    • Denise states that Olivia is four years old, but in the episode The Birthday Party, it is said that Olivia is turning four.

    • Olivia's voice sounds unusually high-pitched in this episode.

  • Quotes

    • (The Admiral has just told Martin and Denise that there is no housing for them on the base, and Denise confesses not calling to confirm.)
      Martin: You FORGOT to confirm the housing?
      Admiral: That's what I told you!
      Martin: Sorry, sir. I'm taken off guard. Denise, I told you!!
      Denise: I know. I'm sorry.
      Admiral: Would you like me to leave you two alone?

  • Notes

    • This is the first time that Martin informs Denise that his mother dislikes her. This would be further explored in the episode Grampy and Nu-Nu Visit the Huxtables.

    • Denise states that Olivia is four years old, but in the episode The Birthday Party, it is said that Olivia is turning four.
