Episode Summary

Elvin looks forward to watching the Giants-Eagles playoff game at the Huxtable house. Sondra foils his plans by agreeing to help some friends move at the same time. Although several of the couple's friends have promised to help out, Sondra and Elvin are the only ones who show up. Panicked to discover that Nancy and Walter haven't even finished packing, Elvin seeks the aid of Martin and Theo. Theo cannot stay long because his girlfriend has tickets to the game. Nancy continually nags the men for not packing with enough care, and she and Sondra thwart their efforts to watch the game instead of working. Walter purposely gets lost on the way to the new apartment, and the guys scheme to watch the rest of the game at Cliff's house. However, Sondra and Nancy quickly track them down and remind them that they must return the moving truck or face higher rates. Cliff tapes the game for them, but Olivia seemingly spoils the outcome. Cliff admits that he told Olivia to give them a phony score as a prank.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Toward the end of the episode, Martin said Denise is at the library. But aren't libraries usually closed on Sundays? Also add the fact that it was evening time after the guys returned from helping Walter and Nancy move.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Sondra: Honey, they have to be out by Sunday or pay an extra month's rent.
        Elvin: OK, don't they have other friends?
        Sondra: Yes they do, and they will also be there. Look honey, I promise it won't take more than two hours.
        Elvin: All right, all right. But we have to be out of there by 12:00 PM.
        Sondra: We will be. And Elvin remember, they were kind enough to help us move.
        Elvin: Yes, but we were considerate enough not to move during football season.

      • Nancy: Hey guys, I made coffee. Is decaf OK?
        Elvin: Great! (mumbles to Sondra) Decaf. I come here to do real work, they give me fake coffee!

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • In this episode, Cliff teases Martin and Elvin for thinking that the "Giants are going to win" against the Eagles, indicating his allegiance to the Eagles. Bill Cosby in real life is an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan. In recent years, when the Eagles had two quarterbacks injured, Cosby sent his old leather helmet to Eagles head coach Andy Reid and volunteered that he was "ready if needed".

      • Although the "Real" outcome of the playoff game was never revealed in this episode, The New York Giants won the super bowl during the playoff football season in which this episode aired.
