Episode Summary

EDIT
Cliff and Clair go away for a skiing weekend and agree to let Theo use the vacant house for a date with Cheryl. His friend Denny's girlfriend Ellen comes over to discuss plans for Denny's birthday surprise the following night. She drinks a glass of wine before remembering that she is not supposed to mix alcohol with her antihistimines. Theo believes that she has left, but she becomes ill and has to run upstairs to the bathroom. She then feels dizzy and falls asleep in Cliff and Clair's room. A worried Denny arrives and shares his suspicions that Ellen is cheating on him. Theo discovers that Ellen is in the house, and tries to hide her. Cliff and Clair return home after their ski trip is rained out, but Theo can't get them away from Denny long enough to explain what is going on. The situation becomes even more complicated when Martin gets a weekend pass and unexpectedly arrives home with Denise; and Theo's grandparents come over with Sondra and Elvin to pick up a saw. Denny discovers movie tickets with Ellen's name on the envelope and concludes that she is seeing Theo behind his back. Cheryl arrives as Denny is tossing around more accusations. Ellen overhears and sneaks out the back door. She comes around to the front and tells Denny that she has bought him the tickets as a surprise. Theo tells an understanding Cheryl the entire story over dinner.moreless

  • French Farce Galore ala Frasier

    5.0
    This episode is mislabeled on my library DVD copy; the manufacturer switched it with Attack of the Killer Bs.

    Theo is thrilled to have the Huxtable residence all to himself so he can entertain his new girlfriend (from Theo's Final Final) with a romantic dinner for two. Everyone will be gone on ski trips or out for the evening. Hilarity ensues as the doorbell keeps ringing, everyone comes home early, Ellen's boyfriend shows up unexpectedly and Theo has to hide Ellen so they won't spoil the surprise she's planning for her boyfriend's future birthday. Lots of bedroom hopping, lies, and suspected infidelity but, not to worry folks, this is the Cosby Show, and in the end everything gets straightened out. Not a bad episode in which similar farce themes would be used on future 90's sitcoms like Frasier.moreless
