Close to Home is the twentieth episode of The Cosby Show's second season which was first broadcast on March 13, 1986.


It is an average day for the Huxtables: Denise teases Clair on her lopsided work of art after the two return from pottery class, and Cliff talks Theo and Cockroach into writing an educational rap song for a class assignment. But when Cliff's friend Dan (Samuel E. Wright) confides about his troubles at home, Cliff is reminded that average days are not to be taken for granted.
