In a 1990 episode of The Cosby Show, Cliff Huxtable drugs BBQ sauce to put women in the mood

As the Bill Cosby rape saga continues to develop, Redditors uncovered a 1990 episode of The Cosby Show, where Cliff Huxtable apparently included some sort of “special” ingredient in his BBQ sauce to put the women in his family in the mood, so they’ll be a little more agreeable.

“Haven’t you ever noticed after people have some of my barbecue sauce, after a while, when it kicks in, they get all huggy-buggy?” he asks his TV wife. “I’m dead serious. Haven’t you ever noticed that after one of my barbecues—and they have the sauce—people want to get right home?”

He then tells her he has a cup of it in their room and suggests they “go on up and have some sauce.”

From Death and Taxes:

Writing credits for the episode go to Bernie Kukoff and Janet Leahy, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t assume that Bill Cosby popped into the writers room with this idea?
