Storyline

Buddy Sorrell's brother, "Blackie" Sorrell (from whom Buddy has been estranged for a long time), shows up at the Alan Brady Show's offices one day. Later meeting Buddy's brother alone while Buddy is out, Rob invites him to his house for dinner, not knowing of his past as a pool hustler. After dinner, knowing Rob has a pool table in the basement, Blackie not-so-innocently suggests that the two of them try playing a game or two. Written by aldanoli

Quotes

Robert 'Rob' Petrie: Are all you Sorrells as funny as Buddy?
Blackie Sorrell: No, uh... My mother was very strict. She said you can't all be funny. One of you has to be handsome. Well...
[strikes a pose and smiles]
Robert 'Rob' Petrie: You made a wise choice.
Blackie Sorrell: Actually we're all handsome in my family, but Buddy just hides it better than I do.
Robert 'Rob' Petrie: I see.
Blackie Sorrell: We're all salesmen, too. Buddy sells jokes and I sell real estate.
Robert 'Rob' Petrie: Hey, you ought to go into business together and sell funny real estate.
