Taking advantage of The Jeffersons' new later Wednesday-night time slot (9:30 p.m. EST), the producers served up an episode that would never have passed muster in "family hour." Temporarily impotent, George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley) desperately tries to hide his condition from wife Louise (Isabel Sanford) as he seeks out all manner of "cures," from aphrodisiacs to therapy. This episode was spoofed over 20 years later on The Rerun Show, with former Jeffersons regular Marla Gibbs making a startling guest appearance.
