  • Fred follows Lamont and Rollo to a movie tryout, which turns out to be an illegal porno operation. The place gets raided by the police and all three of our heroes go jail leaving Aunt Esther as their only hope for freedom. Oh the indignity!moreless

    My personal favorite episode from the entire series. For me personally, just the idea of a 65 year old man getting busted for pornography is off the chain. Fred is at his best as the jokes and putdowns come fast and furious from beginning to end. The jail scene was classic with Fred needing to use the toilet out in the open. Minor side note: The portrayals of the two gay individuals were used just like previous episodes--exaggerated characterizations. One thing you must remember that the series took place in the seventies when television was not into "political correctness." The best part of the episode was when Aunt Esther comes to bail out the Fred. With only iron bars separting the two, Esther really lets Fred have it. Some of those insults were obviously adlibbed which only added more realism to the scene. Special side note: This is the first episode where Rollo meets Esther and gives his famous "Yes Maam" response.moreless
