The Partridges come to the rescue of brothers A.E. and Sam Simon (Richard Pryor, Louis Gossett Jr.), the owners of an inner-city Detroit nightclub called the Fire House. Seems that local loan shark Heavy (Charles Lampkin) is living up to his name, exerting pressure to put the Simons out of business. The happy-ending wrapup occurs at a fundraising block party, where the white-bread Partridges perform such soul tunes as "Bandala", and little Danny (Danny Bonaduce) manages to organize a group of sinister-looking street fighters into an orchestra! Reportedly, this episode was designed as the pilot for a potential series starring Richard Pryor and Louis Gossett Jr. (Wonder whatever happened to those two guys?)
