from an old, old episode of The Cosby Show:
Claire: "Why did we have four children?"
Cliff: pause. Then, "Because we did not want five."
See, I'm sick. It's just a cold, but it's the kind of cold where half the time I'd rather be lying down with my eyes closed than lying down and reading, so . . . it's a cold.
The Cosby Show? Perfect. I may be sick, but I'm sick and giggling.
Peace of Christ to you,

That's particularly amusing since Cosby, in his standup routine, used the same line with just a minor modification:

"My wife and I have five children, and the REASON we have five children is because we do not want SIX."

Also because - I realized as I watched this episode - later in the show they decided that the Huxtables DID have five children. They added Sondra!
