KEEPING IN MIND that Heathcliff is the Cosby we all thought he was, and not the Cosby that he actually is, I would have to say Heathcliff, but Uncle Phil as a close second

Yeah my decision has nothing to do with the case. Just a matter of comfort. Cosby house never had less than 5-6 people living there. And at higher ends it was like 9. And the house was decently large, but it was a regular sized home in Manhattan.

Phil's place was basically a mansion that was so big you never saw people unless they wwere all in the same spot or someones room. Also it had a poolhouse and was so big iirc Geoffrey had his own quarters as well.


So exact same moral compass, strong fatherly role model, but only 4 siblings in a mansion and I'm rich. Also Phil is a pool shark and if I'm ever hard up on cash, I could learn from him and school a few people.

Having access to Urkel tech is also awesome.

There was also the pool house.

Uncle Phil is definitely the best choice here, easy to get along with, so is the rest of the family for the most part.  Lots of space, nice place to live.

Winslow got Urkel and you just know he's going to make a clone machine that spits out the smoother, hipper version of me, so smooth that even I think he deserves to live more than I do.

And you just can't fight that.

Heathcliff was alright but he's basically the weak-man here and they make a good point about just how many people actually lived in that house at one time.

Well; that and his tendencies to spike everybodies drinks at the BBQ's or how he started dating his wife when he was in college and she was like 15; tv Cosby wasn't that far from real-life cosby when you think about it.....

Wait, Cliff Huxtable started dating Clair when she was 15 and he was in college?

It's never explicitly stated as such in those terms, but if you match the timelines of "He said THIS in one episode and then he said THAT in another episode", then... yep. That's the story.

I was trying to think of a third option besides Heathcliff  that would be a good choice between banks and winslow, but I came up short with good candidates

You could add in some white dads. Mr. Drummond(Diff'rent Strokes), Danny Tanner(Full House), Dan Conner(Rosanne), etc...

Lol, no!

Those are some good choices, but I wanted to keep it one-race specific.

In that case the only suggestion I have is going beyond that 80's-90's time period. Aside from those three you've got John Evans from Good Times, you've got Julius from Everybody Hates Chris. Andre Sr. from Black-Ish. Michael Kyle from My Wife & Kids. Fred Sanford.  There's a few out there.

If ppl are saying they get the sci fi devices built by one guy's next door neighbor, then ppl who pick Phil definitely get the live in butler, or GTFO! :P

Then the course set.

Phil, easy. $$$$, he's chill af unless you're an idiot (or Jazz). SoCal. $$$ IN SoCal! He's a Judge; legal advice out the wazoo. $$$. Mansion. $$$. Hillary (am I adopted? Please say I'm adopted.) $$$ Is there ANY downside to picking him!?!?!?

Urkel tech...yeah, how often did that work out? Fucking NEVER. Also: Urkel lives next door and is annoying as fuck. Laura gets on my nerves. Eddie is dumb as a bag of rocks. Harriet would irritate me. There'd NEVER be any peace and quite (or snacks with Carl's fat ass roaming around). The aunt and Richie need to move the fuck out but never do. They forgot ALL about Judy for like, 4 years (it's why she turned to porn). FUCK all of that!

Cliff...too preachy. Too many goddamn people in that house. There's always some guest over. Looks boring as fuck to live there. The only cool sibling moved out ASAP and married some doofus. Does the grandpa ever appear anywhere but the kitchen?? How the fuck can I ever eat in peace with his old ass trying to talk to me about shit that happened before electricity was invented? Nah, son.

PHIL wins 10/10.

You'd have to deal with Carlton.

Using Urkel's time machine made Winslow worth 247 BILLION dollars. The only reason he didn't keep it is because he missed his wife. That was just one of Urkel's random inventions. Fuck the Banks money. I can be so rich their entire fortune is something I burn just because I like the smell of money on fire. And unlike Winslow, I am perfectly willing to just get a hot new trophy wife, or a hot new trophy harem, if the time shenanigans means I'd need to. Access to Urkel is basically access to all of time and space, only without Daleks and no Doctor insisting on me not messing with time.

Lol, I forgot how crazy the later seasons got, IRRC, didn't Urkel make a fully functional teleportation device as well? I vaguely remember them using it to go to Disney World/Disney Land where Laura was a Disney Princess and Urkel a Disney Prince or some shit, sorry, I vaguely remember most the later half of FMs.

You'd have to deal with Carlton.

Don't you mean Will? Carlton would be fine to deal with in my honest opinion.

In that case the only suggestion I have is going beyond that 80's-90's time period. Aside from those three you've got John Evans from Good Times, you've got Julius from Everybody Hates Chris. Andre Sr. from Black-Ish. Michael Kyle from My Wife & Kids. Fred Sanford.  There's a few out there.

I knew I was forgetting a few, thanks for refreshing my memory.

And Urkel's pretty easygoing, too. Look at how many times Carl yelled, but Steve still loved him. Just be friendly, and be willing to shrug off the occasional bit of property damage due to his hijinks, and the space-time continuum is your oyster.
Truten forever!

I'd pick Steve myself, even without his inventions. But Carlton is a close second.
