Isn't It Romantic? is the twenty-first episode of The Cosby Show's sixth season which was first broadcast on February 22, 1990.


Theo throws Cliff, Elvin, and Martin a challenge they cannot ignore: prove that they are not living in "the marriage graveyard" (where Theo claims romances go to die)! Cliff devises a secret competition that will not only resurrect the romance in their lives but will determine which of the husbands is the most romantic. According to his plan, the reactions of their wives to some specially selected presents will be the barometer for determining "The Emperor of Romance." But Olivia spills the beans to the women just before the big event, leaving the three wives to plot sweet revenge for being used as pawns in their husbands' macho game.
