Episode Info

Hoping to relive his glory days as "Combustible Huxtable", Cliff (Bill Cosby) jumps at the chance to reunite his old college track team on behalf of his former coach Ernie Scott (Al Freeman Jr.). It seems that Scott has arranged a "grudge" mile-relay match with the only runner who'd ever defeated Cliff, one "Tailwind" Turner (played by 1956 Olympic medalist Joshua Culbreath). Unfortunately, it's been 25 years since Cliff ran competitively, and the old "Combustible" ain't what he used to be. The final sequence was taped on location at the Meadowlands.
