He recounted in testimony he gave in March 2006 at the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia that the blue pills were actually Benadryl, which he said he thought "might help take some of the stress and tension away." He gave her 1.5 pills, split into three halves, he said.
After some more chatting, he said, "we began to neck and we began to touch and we began to feel and kiss and kiss back."
After moving to a living room sofa and assuming what he called "a spooning position," Mr. Cosby said, the contact became more intimate.
"I go inside of her pants," he said, adding: "She then took her hand and put it on top of my hand to push it in further."
After more contact and a sound from Ms. Constand that he assumed was an orgasm, he testified, he asked her to "please take a nap," then went upstairs and set his alarm clock. When he returned, he said, a few hours later, he was surprised to find Ms. Constand awake.
"I said in sort of a chastising way, I thought you were going to go to sleep," he said, during his deposition.
Ms. Constand's version of the encounter could not be more different.
Yes, Mr. Cosby had led her to a sofa, she said. But already she said she could not move or speak. She described herself as "frozen," as "paralyzed," while he fondled her breasts, penetrated her vagina with his fingers and placed her hand on his erect penis.
Ms. Constand's mother later told investigators that her daughter "had sleep disturbances that included nightmares and instances in which she would scream in her sleep."
But in his deposition, Mr. Cosby consistently characterized the meeting as a consensual encounter.
He recalled giving Ms. Constand a blueberry muffin and going into what he called his cappuccino room to make her a cup of Red Zinger tea. They talked briefly, he said, before she left.
Mr. Cosby said he didn't think his behavior had upset her.
