The Cosby Show | Season Two Opening Credits
For this season, the opening credits changed from the Huxtables in the park to a gray room with the cast dancing. The song was changed for the first time keeping the show’s theme signature and featured a sort of jazz tone. Each cast member, in descending age of their characters, dances alongside Cosby as his/her name is shown in the credits. Midway through the season, following her marriage to NBC sportscaster Ahmad Rashād, Phylicia Ayers-Allen’s name in the opening credits is changed to “Phylicia Rashād”.

Let me tell you something, Elvin. You see, I am not serving Dr. Huxtable, okay? That’s the kind of thing that goes on in a restaurant. Now I’m going to bring him a cup of coffee just like he brought me a cup of coffee this morning. And that, young man, is what marriage is made of - it is give and take, 50-50, and if you don’t get it together and drop these macho attitudes, you’re never going to have anyone bring you anything anywhere any place any time ever. Now… what would you like in your coffee?

Raven Symoné’s fried chicken, biscuits, and gravy looked delicious

But I worry that people are automatically thinking “Where’s the water melon.”
