    Definitely a top 10 episode; everything is on top form in this episode and, indeed, in this season.



    So, Fred gets a TV at a great price. Lamont (who is not a big dummy) thinks Fred got a stolen TV. Of course, when Grady comes over to watch some fights with Fred, it's revealed that Grady's house was robbed... and that Fred's TV is Grady's!



    Of course, Fred (our "adult child") thinks he can sell the TV off to Lamont's friend... who returns while Fred was discussing the situation to the police Grady had brought over...



    As usual, the jokes are dry and nobody else could get away with the lines Fred gets to say... Highly recommended.moreless
