The Getaway is the seventeenth episode of The Cosby Show's eighth season which was first broadcast on February 6, 1992.


Sondra and Elvin ask Cliff to take care of Winnie & Nelson as they unpack their things into their new house in New Jersey.

The twins refuse to let Cliff take a nap and he ends up playing hide & seek with them, but they accidentally break a grandfather clock.

After the movers see what happened to the clock, they help Cliff out by shipping it to a repair shop to get fixed. When Elvin returns to pick up the twins, he tries to convince Cliff to sell him his station wagon because he & Sondra need a second car.
