  • Balki misuses checks.

    8.0
    This episode is silly. Balki thinks that if you can right checks you can buy anything. He buys this ugly furniture and Larry flips out as he has gotten rid of his furniture which he has an emotional attachment to. We see Balki blackmail Mr Twink to get the furniture back. We also see a funny scene with the future Mr Gorpley as a banker. The episode is good not one of the best but the way Balki says checks always cracks me up. This show is one of my favorite shows of all time and this episode is good.moreless

    • This episode is an exceptional rarity in television, as two actors, Sam Anderson and Belita Moreno, have guest starring roles, yet would both eventually become regular cast members in different roles: Sam Anderson as mail room boss Mr. Gorpley, and Belita Moreno (here appearing in her recurring role as Mrs. Twinkacetti) as advice columnist Lydia Markham.
