Last Barbecue is the third episode of The Cosby Show's seventh season which was first broadcast on October 4, 1990.


Theo's plan to hire a stripper for brother-in-law Martin's belated party sets off sparks in the Huxtable house and ignites a full-blown battle of sexes. While the men consider the striptease "traditional," the women call it "archaic, demeaning and stupid." Even Grandma and Grandpa Huxtable get caught in the crossfire. But by the time the battle wanes and the smoke clears, its participants are lovely-dovey again. Is it the influence of reason or, as Cliff claims, the secret ingredient in his barbecue sauce?
