Episode Summary

Denise and Martin become frustrated by their lack of privacy and decide to look for an apartment. This news thrills both Cliff; and Rudy, who believes that she will finally get her own room. Olivia, however, vows that she will never leave the Huxtable house. Denise and Martin are unable to find a halfway decent apartment that fits within their budget. Theo learns of an opening through a friend's psychic, and passes along the information to the couple. Martin is horrified to find a tiny room (patterned after a ship) with a shower in the living room and a refrigerator that folds out into a bed. Olivia would have to sleep in a drawer. Denise believes the place has potential for some reason, and pouts when Martin rejects it. She eventually realizes that he was right, and they make up. Cliff and Clair have a good laugh at their expense, and share stories of a houseboat where they once lived. Everyone becomes terrified of Rudy after she learns that she must continue sharing her room with Olivia.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Martin, as an officer in the Navy, likely could have afforded a modest apartment in 1991 Brooklyn, despite the writers' attempts to appear otherwise, thus keeping Martin, Denise & Olivia living with the Huxtables for another year.

    • When the family returns home from their trip and complain that Cliff let the car run out of gas, he argues that he usually has another 15 miles after the tank reads empty. This is the same trait he attributed to his car, "Betty Lou," but he traded in that car in Say Hello to a Good Buy.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Denise: "It says there is room for three kids."
      Martin: "Where, on the stove?"
      Denise (pulling out one drawer): "Here's one."
      Martin: "Olivia sleeps in a drawer?"
      Denise (pulling out another drawer): "Here's two." (Studying the blueprint and walking toward the fridge) "Here's three!"
      Martin: "Well, what if you get hungry in the middle of the night? What are you supposed to do, fold the kid up?!?!"
