Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the second half of Good Times' sixth-season opener, the Evans kids are celebrating the return of their mother, Florida (Esther Rolle), who has come back to attend the wedding between her daughter, Thelma (BernNadette Stanis), and up-and-coming football player Keith Anderson (Ben Powers). The combination of the impending nuptials and Keith's anticipated big-bucks contract with the Chicago Bears does not prevent Thelma from having second thoughts about tying the knot. And another crisis is looming on the horizon: Having lost his job, Thelma's brother J.J. (Jimmie Walker) may not be able to afford a big wedding. Originally telecast as a single one-hour episode, "Florida's Homecoming" has since been re-edited as two half-hours for syndication purposes.
