J.J. (Jimmie Walker) is on Cloud Nine when wealthy young Clarissa Robinson (Rosanne Katon) asks him to escort her to a debutante ball. Alas, Clarissa's upscale black parents (Santiago Gonzalez, Ann Weldon) are dead set against her dating a "slum dweller." The episode's climax, a showdown between the stuffy Mr. Robinson and the outraged James Evans (John Amos), is one of the series' most hilariously satisfying denouements.
