In this variation on the old "Man Who Came to Dinner" routine, Fred and Lamont Sanford (Redd Foxx, Demond Wilson) kick a homeless man named Gus (Liam Dunn) out of their junkyard. Pretending to be injured, Gus threatens to sue unless the Sanfords tend to his every need. Figuring that the bum is faking, Fred plots to expose his scheme. This was one of several Sanford and Son episodes written by Ilunga Adell, then a 20-year-old alumnus of Joseph Papp's Public Theater.
