Trivia

This episode includes a couple Watergate-era references: (1) When Fred denies having tried to win a favor from Lamont by making his favorite breakfast, Fred asks why would he try and bribe Lamont - he isn't the vice-president. Nixon's first vice president Spiro Agnew had to resign in October 1973 over a bribe-taking and kickback scandal dating to Agnew's days as governor of Maryland. (2) Fred says, "No man is above the law, unless he's president. And then it don't even work." By this time the Watergate scandal had ensnared even President Richard Nixon, who would resign in August 1974, eight months after this episode aired. See more »

Rodolfo Hoyos as the property surveyor
11 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"This Land is Whose Land?" finds Fred and Julio in complete disagreement about the exact line where each other's property begins. Fred becomes so adamant about the exact distance that he brings in a surveyor to mark the property line. Imagine his shock to discover that the surveyor is a Puerto Rican fellow named Manuel Eduardo Esteban Rodrigues Gonzalez: "oh hell, I'm dead!" Once he completes his work, Fred is in for an even bigger surprise, a property line that barely allows room to park the Sanford and Son truck! Now Julio's in the better bargaining position, Lamont all smiles to see his father served crow for brunch: "we'll have truth on our side" "I'd rather have the yard!"
