Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Once again, Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) arrives home unexpectedly, shattering a tender romantic liason between his son Lamont (Demond Wilson) and Lamont's latest sweetie. Since this has already happened dozens of times, Lamont can stand no more. Moving into a swinging bachelor apartment in downtown L.A., Lamont sits back and waits for a crowd of young ladies to beat a path to his door. But, as usual, the younger Sanford is riding for a fall. Based on "A Box in Town," a 1965 episode of the British sitcom Steptoe and Son, "A Pad for Lamont" was first broadcast on February 25, 1972.
