"House Hunting" finds the Evans family in the market to buy a house that has been vacant for three months, not in the best of shape but a steal for $25,000. Thelma learns from Michael all about the 'red lining' business: "that's when the white bankers draw red lines around black areas, and don't give up no green!" Needing only a down payment of $750 to secure a loan from the Federal Housing Administration, everyone contributes their life savings, even JJ's three bucks. Bookman already knows about the potential move, assuring that there's nothing he's going to miss about JJ! Only Keith is a holdout, insistent on saving enough for he and Thelma to get their own place, though the close knit clan quickly convince him to change his mind. Florida sums up the family motto when things don't go their way: "it's not the kind of roof we have over our heads, it's the family under the roof that counts!"
