    This is the only episode that I can remember which features the actual Niedermeyers who own the building that the Wayans work in. It begins with the Wayans and the Niedermeyers having dinner together, and Mrs. Niedermeyer can't seem to keep her hands off of Shawn. Eventually, she blackmails him by saying that if he won't sleep with her, that she will not sign his lease and he won't be able to continue his news-stand business. Shawn becomes torn between breaking his morals and losing his business. Meanwhile, it's up to Marlon and Pops to keep Mr. Niedermeyer, who is insanely jealous, from knowing that his wife is trying to cheat on him. This episode shows that Shawn is an admirable character, and that Marlon is hilarious. Not a bad effort, but not my favorite either. It's kind of painful to watch when Mrs. Niedermeyer throws herself at Shawn.
