Disclaimer- I don't own these characters, OK?
(This is my first fanfic so I didn't know that it was better to write in paragraph form. My other chapters are in paragraph form)
(Cliff is sitting in the living room on the couch, eating a sandwich and watching T.V. Rudy walks through the front door, arriving home from school.)
Rudy: Hi daddy!
Cliff: Hi cupcake.
Cliff: How was school today?
Rudy: It was great! Guess what I brought home.
(Rudy reaches into her pocket of her overalls.)
Rudy: It's Willie the lizard.
Cliff: Now where'd you get a thing like that?
Rudy: My teacher.
Cliff: Your teacher just gave it to you?
Rudy: Well, I told her it was alright with you if I had a pet.
Cliff: And what did I tell you about having a pet?
Rudy: Umm… no.
Cliff: You're going to need to free Willie before Mom finds out.
(Clare walks in through the kitchen doors into the living room.)
Clare: Finds out about what?
(Rudy runs upstairs to her bedroom.)
Clare: Cliff, what was that all about?
(Cliff shoves his sandwich into his mouth so his speech is impaired.)
Clare: Oh, Cliff (laughing).
(Theo walks through to front door, looking guilty, with Cockroach following right behind him.)
Theo: Hi mom, hi dad.
Cliff: Hello there son. What's happening?
Cockroach: Hello Mrs. Huxtable, Mr. Huxtable.
(Theo sidesteps his way toward the staircase, keeping his back faced away from his parents.)
Theo: Well, talk to you guys later. I got lots of homework to do and I…
Cliff: Stop! Turn around.
(Theo turns around but places his hand over the back of his neck, pretending to scratch it.)
Cliff: Put your hands on your head.
(Theo puts his hands on his head, but turns back around.)
Cockroach: Now boogie on down tonight!
(Cockroach puts his hands on his head and begins turning in circles, doing some sort of funny dance. Theo uses this quick distraction as a chance to slip upstairs to his room.)
Clare: Sherlock Holmes, you have a case to crack.
(They laugh together and walk into the kitchen.)
