Cyranoise de Bergington is the eighth episode of The Cosby Show's fifth season which was first broadcast on November 17, 1988.


Theo's friend Howard breaks up with the beautiful Julia. Theo sees this as an opportunity to date her himself, even though he is already dating Justine. To make sure Julia likes him, he asks his friend Denny to put in a good word for him. Although Julia falls for Denny, Theo is not discouraged and decides to try his luck anyway. His two-timing plans fall through, however, when Justine finds out and warns Julia. Both ladies drop Theo the same day, leaving Cliff to piece together his son's shattered ego.

Meanwhile, Rudy found a pendant she wanted to buy for Clair for the mother’s birthday, which was two months away. However, she was $31.05 short, so she agreed to earn the money by doing chores. She was made to clean the refrigerator and her room, but she failed to do those right, feeling tired after working on them when told to.
