* Mrs. Granger, one of Cliff's friends at the hospital where he works at, who's about to be laid off due to cutbacks, telling him that her daughter has offered to put her through college as a "thank-you" to her mom for working hard to put "her" through college. In addition, earlier in the scene, Mrs. Granger telling Cliff about her grandson and how he wants to be a grandmother himself because "grandmas always give you presents." Later sets up a TearJerker moment when Cliff asks her what he has to say about grandfathers, and Mrs. Granger sadly replies that he never met his as her husband [[ShotgunWedding married her simply because she was pregnant]], and that [[DisappearedDad he walked out on her on the first night of their anniversary]]. Later, though, she tells Cliff that on a brighter note, her daughter's husband is [[GoodParents well more responsible and is taking his familial duties well to heart]]. All of this is made double by the fact that the actress playing Mrs. Granger, Rita Moreno, is another longtime friend of Cosby's and had previously co-starred alongside him in ''Series/TheElectricCompany1971''.

** It's worth mentioning that the kid who puts the joint in Theo's book is actually a pretty decent guy. When he goes over to Theo's house, he has a nice conversation with Rudy and is respectful to Cliff, referring to him as "sir." Before he leaves, he tells Theo has was glad to help him out and they even agree to play freeze football together. Considering Theo practically had to threaten him to get him to admit his deed, it's good to see them part as friends.

* After getting into a bid war for a rare album over the phone, Cliff loses the auction but feels that he drove the price up so high that the fool who won would have to own the album for decades to be worth the winning price. When he learns that the "fool" was Clair, he looks absolutely mortified at being responsible for costing her hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. She cheerfully explains that phone operator's unauthorized bids (he kept adding new bids even after Cliff told him to stop) were not counted and the true final price was within the range of what Cliff was willing to pay, so the episode ends with the two of them dancing to the music.
