Episode Summary

EDIT
Theo frets to Elvin about his relationship with Justine. He is worried about losing her if she decides to go to graduate school, but says that he isn't ready for a serious relationship. Theo and Elvin attend a performance by legendary blues singer/guitarist Riley Jackson. Theo brings one of Riley's records to the Huxtable house to introduce his music to his parents. He is stunned to find that Riley is at the house having dinner. He is a longtime friend of Russell and Anna, and visits with them whenever he is in town. He came to see Cliff and Clair because Cliff's parents are away. Vanessa is depressed because she doesn't have a boyfriend, and declines to listen to Riley sing. She thinks that blues music is too whiny. Kenny, a fan of the blues because of his brother's influence, comes over and does a duet with Riley. Rudy is not impressed. Theo seeks relationship advice from Riley. He is confused because he loves Justine, but still doesn't know if she is "the one." Riley says that all relationships move at their own pace. Theo is very happy when Justine returns to town and joins him at Riley's performance. Vanessa loves the show and gets overly enthusiastic. Theo talks to his parents about Justine. He says that he is afraid that Justine wants to get married and will be disappointed if he doesn't commit. His parents point out that he has no reason to believe Justine feels this way, and suspect that Theo is using this as a cover because he is the one starting to think about marriage. Theo is a little freaked out.moreless
