Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Jeffersons launched its tenth season with episode one of a three-party story. After George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley) mocks the gullibility of his neighbor and in-law Tom Willis (Franklin Cover) with his old Navy buddies, the men decide to teach Tom a lesson with an elaborate con job. Sure enough, Tom takes the bait and surrenders the 15,000 dollars he'd been saving as a down payment for a new home. Unfortunately, two of George's "pals" decide to take the con one step farther by skipping with the money and heading for parts unknown.
