An earthquake shakes up the Sanfords, and the threat of an even bigger quake sparks Fred to sell the house and seek shelter in Las Vegas.
Did You Know?
When originally broadcast, the scene of Fred attempting to hitchhike was accompanied by Bessie Smith's 'Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out". On the DVD release and in most syndicated airings, the scene is accompanied by the Sanford and Son theme. See more
Fred is trying to sell the house to two potential buyers by quickly showing them the house before the next earthquake starts. At one point he and the couple go upstairs (and off-camera) and we hear Fred moving up and down the hall opening and closing doors to each room very quickly. However you can see his shadow on the wall as Redd Foxx is obviously standing still opening and closing a prop door just out of view of the audience. See more
