  • Trivia

    • When Clair comes home from her first workout, she's too tired to hang up her coat on the hook and lets it drop on the floor. Cliff does the same thing during the season one episode, "Back to the Track, Jack".

  • Quotes

    • Vanessa: Usually, we go out for Mexican food. This is going to be even better than what we get at El Grande Restaurant.
      Cliff: (as he prepares dinner) Might!
      Theo: Dad, you even made guacamole and quesedillas, Mom's favorite. She's going to love you for this.
      Cliff: (with a big smile on his face) I had your mother in mind when I made this decision.

    • Clair: (to Emma) Now whatever the diet and whatever the exercise, you just bring it on because I am here--to work! And I am going to be so good when I'm finished, I'm going to make my own video--The Clair Huxtable Workout. And I'm not going to give you a copy. You're going to have to buy your own!

    • Emma: Good afternoon, all you sagging hunks of flesh! I see you've been munching those bon-bons and eating that gourmet ice cream; it looks like SOME of you went back for seconds! I know what you were thinking..."I'll enjoy it now and pay later." Well, let me introduce myself...I'm Later!"

    • (Emma finds an exhausted Clair asleep in the aerobics room)
      Emma: Anybody left in this room automatically has to take my next class! (Clair wakes up with a scream) I knew that'd get you up.

    • (Clair has just explained her plan to lose five pounds in six days.)
      Emma: Five pounds in six days? Honey, that's the kind of miracle we PRAY for; get down on your knees NOW.
