  • Funny, but not really meant for the kids.

    More than any other episode, this was one that was shocking for The Cosby Show. I think that the target audience of this episode wasn't the family, but more for couples, which is why, although funny, this episode was shocking. Basically Cliff prepares a barbecue for everyone, and Theo sets up for a stripper to come to Martin's bachelor party. This is because Martin never had a bachelor party. Denise gets offended by it, as well as Sondra, when her husband Elvin shows off how he used to be, very chauvinistic, when he doesn't seem to care. Multiple funny arguments take place at the table, about how men ogle, or drool, over women who look a certain way. Clair criticizes Theo many times for starting the problem. Even Russell talks about how he enjoyed the stripper at his bachelor party, which Anna also states she was offended by. It appeared that Cliff was the only one who didn't have a stripper at his party otherwise I think Clair would've said something. At the end, they make up and Denise decides to be the stripper, interesting that she says that in front of Cliff and Clair. Cliff says his sauce did it, which is why he then takes it away from Kenny, who was near Rudy. Although the majority of the episode could have offended family viewers, it was still funny.
