Episode Summary

EDIT
Almost everyone is thrilled as the Tibideauxs prepare to finally move into their own house in New Jersey. However, Cliff refuses to get too excited until the move has actually happened. Elvin and a reluctant Sondra ask Cliff to watch the twins while they unload everything at the new house. The kids refuse to let Cliff take a nap. He finally plays hide-and-seek with them, and accidentally breaks the grandfather clock. The movers see what has happened, and save him by shipping the clock to a repair shop. Elvin returns for Nelson and Winnie. He tries to convince Cliff to sell him his station wagon, as he and Sondra will now need a second car.moreless

    This episode aired in 1992



    This is the episode when Sondra, Elvin, and the twins move out of the Huxtable house.



    In this episode, Everybody but Cliff and his grandchildren help Sondra and Elvin move in to there new house.



    Cliff wants to relax and sleep but the twins keep bothering him.



    He then plays hide and seek with them and breaks the grandfather clock, that was so funny.



    The episode end with Elvin leaving the Huxtable house.



    I think Cliff was very happy because he wanted them to leave.



    The Getaway was also the name of a Everybody Loves Raymond episode.

    In that episode, Ray and Debra go to Vermont.moreless
