: This friend of mine, he's got a problem. Harry Bentley
: Oh I'm sorry to hear it. George Jefferson
: So am I. See, he got into some trouble when he was a kid in Harlem. His family was so poor, his mother had to hold down 2 jobs just so they could afford to starve. And one day he heard his mother bragging to this other lady that no matter how bad times was, her youngest son always came through with a fine Christmas present for her. That really tore him up because he knew damn well he never gave her no Christmas present, and he knew she wasn't going to get none this year neither. Harry Bentley
: Well that's sad. George Jefferson
