In the NBC broadcast, and also retained in the DVD version, a montage of clips and newspaper articles paying tribute to the show are presented, but many of the newspaper headlines are accompanied by the same article - which has nothing to do with the show. See more »

Theo: Yes, I guess he is. Come in, Kenny.
Kenny: [gives him a present] Happy graduation.
Theo: What is it?
Kenny: Open it.
Theo: [sits down on the sofa and opens it] Kenny, these are tube socks. They come in six pairs.
Kenny: Actually, five.

The end of an era
22 May 2006 | by iplaygames2See all my reviews

I grew up watching the Cosby Show, and now I catch it in syndication every chance I get. I think it was the last wholesome family sitcom ever on television, and it's a shame we'll never have another one like it. This show basically ruled 1980s television, and kept a place among the top shows into the early 90s. Sure it had its ups and downs, but all in all it was a great show for the whole family to gather round the television and watch.

With the closing credits, as the Huxtables dance their way off the set, take a good look at all of the cast standing behind the cameras. Look at the studio audience giving them a standing ovation. The Cosby Show brought black actors into mainstream television, and the world is a better place for it. Thanks for the memories, Huxtables!
