Episode Summary

EDIT
The Huxtables eagerly anticipate a visit from Cliff's great aunt Gramtee, who is coming to town to celebrate her 98th birthday. She embarrasses Cliff with stories about his childhood, and mesmerizes the children by sharing accounts of a relative who lived during times of slavery. Olivia is upset by the family's plans to attend church after Gramtee's birthday celebration, as a friend's parents had invited her to come to the zoo and Playland at the same time. She continually pleads with Denise to let her go to the zoo, but Denise stands her ground. Clair is impressed by Denise's resolve, but warns her to expect a tantrum. Olivia eventually talks to Gramtee, who tells her that she can make her own decision about whether to attend church. However, Olivia elects to go to church after all because she likes spending time with Gramtee.moreless

  • IMO, the best episode of the series.

    10
    A wonderful story full of love, and lessons learned about family. The interactions between little Oliva and Gramtee are simply heartwarming. Also when she is talking to the children about education, well that is not to be missed. The playfullness betyween her and Cliff is also a riot. I think this episode summed up what this entire show was all about. The special bonds of family. You cannot watch this episode without being touched. It may sound silly to some, but I was moved to tears, and still mist up, everytime I watch it. (About 10 times now.)



    It finishs in church with singing by a soloist and choir, that will have your heart soaring. If you have to choose one episode to watch of this entire series, make it this one!moreless
