I'm "In" With the "In" Crowd is the third episode of The Cosby Show's sixth season which was first broadcast on October 5, 1989.


Vanessa and her girlfriends have a party, but they quickly become bored. They find themselves asking for trouble when they find a bottle of bourbon, and opt to play the Alphabet Game. Vanessa (and everyone else) chug-a-lugs her way to a miserable night of sickness and through a nasty hangover the next day. Cliff and Clair learn of the incident, but decide no further punishment is necessary on their end, as Vanessa's sickness is more than punishment enough. But the next day, they still decide to hammer the lesson home even further. They devise an alphabet game of their own that includes Rudy, four shot glasses, a bottle of booze and a confused and extremely reluctant Vanessa. She watches in horror, as Rudy is forced to drink, and pleads to be let out, to no avail. However, when it ends up being her turn to drink, the 'booze' is nothing more than iced tea.
