  • Trivia

    • On NBC's The Cosby Show: A Look Back telecast, it's revealed that Phylicia Rashad is a fluent speaker of Spanish; and to incorporate this skill into the show, Clair was supposed to give a tirade in Spanish every time she was really upset with something the kids had done. In the pilot, a harried Clair comes down the stairs after
      handling a fussing Theo, Rudy and Vanessa, going off in Spanish!! Unfortunately, this character quirk was never developed--although in a few early episodes, Clair can be seen going off in Spanish.
