Wikipedia has further proven that the Huxtables are completely transparent to at least one other person besides myself. Everyone hates Elvin. Cliff hates kids. Rudy wants to stab Olivia. Vanessa is the worst and the sooner she is out of the house the better.
I submit as evidence the following episode descriptions not submitted by me to Wikipedia:
Play It Again, Vanessa- Vanessa plays clarinet in the school’s orchestra. She plays an embarrassing solo at the school concert, but her parents support her anyway (because she is blackmailing them).
How Ugly Is He?- Denise has a new boyfriend, David, but is reluctant to bring him home. She fears that Cliff will, like always, make fun of the boy and ruin her chances with him.
Father’s Day- Cliff complains about the poor quality of his annual Father’s Day gifts. He challenges the children to find some better presents for a December Father’s Day (or he will send them to the salt mines).
Adventures in Babysitting- Rudy begs Martin to let her babysit Olivia (so she can strangle her with a jumprope).
First Day of School- Cliff and Clair are overjoyed with the arrival of the new school year, as their children are finally out of the house (and they can do it all day long).
Cliff in Love- Sondra breaks up with her boyfriend Elvin and is depressed, taking it out on the family. Cliff and Clair aren’t exactly unhappy; they find Elvin rather annoying (what else is new).
Cliff gets Jilted- Vanessa and Dabnis announce that they have broken their engagement . . . and would-be father-in-law Cliff is devastated (because Vanessa is going to live at home forever).
Man Talk- Although he has a steady girlfriend, Theo wants to start dating someone else (Cockroach).
