  • Trivia

    • The family plays a wedding re-run ceremony so that Cliff can give Denise away. Why was Martin conducting his own wedding ceremony? Couldn't someone else like Theo play the part of the minister or judge conducting the ceremony?

    • It seems like Martin couldn't make up his mind on how to address Cliff. When Cliff meets Martin at the Cafe de Balzac, Martin addresses Cliff as Dad while sitting with the two ladies. Later at the kitchen, when they were drinking the apple juice, Martin addresses Cliff as Dr. Huxtable.
