* PantyShot: Rudy in some early instances of Innocent Panties. In the episode where the family stages a funeral for Rudy's deceased goldfish, she nervously lifts her skirt up. In the opening of season 3, which was choreographed, Rudy spins around towards a sitting position and her billowy long skirt twirls up high enough to she her panties.

** In Season 2, Theo gets his ear pierced to impress a girl he likes, but it's a botched job and becomes infected. Cliff hopes that Russel will punish the boy, but instead Russel talks about how Cliff tried to wax his head for a girl (Clair!) and ended up burning it all off. Then ''Anna'' shares the story of how Russel tried to get her name tattooed on her chest, but said "Ada" instead because of a cold (and [[ContrivedCoincidence Ada happened to be the name of Anna's rival]]), and later had to have it removed. The Huxtable women comment that the men in their lives are idiotic for doing such ridiculous things.
--->'''Denise''': You Huxtable men are crazy!
--->'''Cliff''': But we always get our women!
--->'''Clair''': But not ''because'' of the things you do...''despite'' them.

** Sondra gets another one in-universe in the episode where she allows Elvin to go out to dinner with an old girlfriend--after he ''specifically said'' he felt uncomfortable going without her and repeatedly insisted that he shouldn't do it. When he goes out anyway (again, after much protesting), stays late, and pays the check, Sondra becomes furious and won't talk to him. Later, when she complains to Clair and expects a sympathetic ear, her mother instead uses this trope, pointing out that ''Sondra'' created the problem by not being honest about her feelings in the first place, and therefore has no one to blame but herself.

** It's also possible that some of the kids received scholarships and other financial aid. Sondra is depicted as bright; Denise is a legacy at her (fictional) college and doesn't get her first "D" until she starts to attend (plus she drops out after only one year). So while it would still be a big expense, it's feasible.

* WouldRatherSuffer: The regular actors ended up acting out a storybook scene from a [[ShowWithinAShow story Rudy wrote]], where an evil henchman makes romantic advances on the good song leader, and she rejects him:
---> '''Henchman:''' ...And then there's two weeks out of the year that I get to go on vacation and cruise and pillage. And if you played your cards right you could come along and pillage with me.
---> '''Song Leader:''' I'd rather sit on a cactus plant!
---> '''Henchman:''' We could do that, too, if you'd like.
