  • Lamont picks up some coffins to sell, but Fred is reluctant to stay under the same roof as the pine boxes...

    "That's about as funny as a trainwreck. Now that would give you some business!" Fred is his usual wisecracking self in this funny episode all about superstition. Fred gets in some really well-crafted wisecracks with the mortician, and Slappy White has a funny cameo as Melvin, but the real humor comes in the relations between Fred and Lamont. Lamont, as usual, dispels all of Fred's beliefs and opinions, only to discover that there may be some truth in them. The ending where the two end up sleeping in the bed of the truck to get away from the coffins was entertaining and memorable. A season one classic for sure.moreless
