Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lamont (Demond Wilson) is beaten up after dating the girlfriend of barroom bully Jo-Jo Jackson (Stan Haze). Determined to defend himself when he meets up with Jo-Jo again, Lamont begins taking karate lessons. Meanwhile, Grady tells Jo-Jo that Lamont is suffering from a serious illness -- and after seeing Lamont flamboyantly going through his karate-chop movements, Jo-Jo is convinced that Grady is telling the truth. This episode was hastily assembled to replace the unfilmed installment "Charley's Tea" when series star Redd Foxx walked off the show due to a contract dispute.
