Tom's father dies and leaves a warehouse to Alan, with the specific condition that he may not sell it to anyone on his father's side of the family. Meanwhile, the Help Center can't afford a rent increase, and George's laundry presser has raised his prices.
George hires Roy Crandall, a former ventriloquist, as his new stockbroker. When his old stockbroker tells him that Roy spent time in a mental hospital, he regrets this and tries to stop Florence from going out with the man.
Louise wants a celebrity to talk to the kids at the Help Center, so George suggests Billy Dee Williams, who is in town making a movie. He calls him up, pretending to be author Alex Haley, and asks Ralph to find a lookalike in case he can't get the real thing. Florence is excited at first, but when Ralph returns with the name of a celebrity lookalike agency, she assumes that the man coming to the apartment is an impersonator.
Florence is quitting her job as the Jeffersons' maid when her new boyfriend, Buzz Thatcher, proposes to her. However, Louise is concerned that Florence is getting into a bad situation when she discovered that Buzz is controlling.
