The Cosby Show: With This Ring?

Vanessa shocks Cliff and Clair by bringing home her fiance, Dabnis, who she has been engaged to for six months without telling either of them. Cliff and Clair are not happy at all, but reluctantly invite him to dinner. Clair believes that Vanessa is in over her head, but Vanessa insists that she's in love. Cliff doesn't like Dabnis, but he changes his mind when he discovers that Dabnis owns his own home, which means that Vanessa wouldn't have to live at the Huxtable house anymore.

Episode Notes
The mural opening sequence, which originally was supposed to be used last season, makes its debut this season. In order to keep the mural scene legal, proper credit is given to the makers of the designs in the end-credit sequence. Erika Alexander is now featured with a visual dance sequence, Lisa Bonet and Joseph C. Philips had a sequence filmed, but due to their removal from the series, the scenes were deleted.
