Calling Doctor Huxtable - S3-E17

Corrected entry: When Cliff speaks to the Hispanic couple at the hospital, the wife replies "Como?" because she does not understand English. Typically, native Hispanics who don't understand English will reply either "Que?" (What?) or "No comprendo" (I don't understand) when they address you if you try to talk to them in English. "Como" is actually "how" in Spanish.


Correction: This observation is incorrect. Depending on how it's used 'como' has more than one meaning: '¿Cómo?' in question form can be translated as 'what?', 'excuse me?' or 'come again?' It is not unusual to hear a native Spanish speaker ask a question as such.
