Storyline

With just days to go before Christmas, Cliff and Clair have a bedroom discussion about gifts given to them on that holiday and other holidays. This prompts Cliff to pull out a trunk and show her and then later the kids, the silly Father's Day gifts he's gotten. When Clair takes the kids out shopping, they hope to make up for their past indifference to their Father's feelings. Written by happipuppi13

Quotes

Theodore 'Theo' Huxtable: [about the silly Miami necktie he bought Cliff for Father's Day] And, Dad, sorry about that tie.
Cliff: [holding a ridiculous tie he got for Father's Day] It's ok, son. Somewhere out there I'm sure there's a suit that goes with this tie. *But don't get the suit!*
