Vanessa's New Class


Episode Info

Vanessa (Tempestt Bledsoe) worries that her science-fair "solar system" project doesn't measure up to those of her schoolmates in her new advanced scinece class. As it happens, her project isn't rated too highly--but rather than take responsibility for this, jealous Vanessa gets mad at her best friend Janet (Pam Potillo, in her first series appearance) for winning Third Place at the fair. Elsewhere, Clair (Phylicia Rashad) would rather suffer a broken dishwasher than have self-styled handyman Cliff (Bill Cosby) try to fix the mechanism, thereby making a bad situation worse!
