Vanessa unexpectedly drops by the Huxtable household for a visit, claiming that she needs some peace and quiet to study. Dabnis arrives at the house few hours later, showing Cliff and Clair a cryptic note that Vanessa had left him.

Dabnis confronts Vanessa and notes her continued reluctance to set a wedding date & wonders why she is pushing him away. Vanessa apologizes to Dabnis and asks him to be patient as she deals with her fears about marriage.

Meanwhile, Kenny gets back at Stanley by tagging along on his date with Rudy. Also, Cliff annoys Clair by dropping hints about the outcome of a book that she's reading.
