Lamont in Love was the 105th overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 18th episode of Season Five, it first aired on NBC-TV on February 6, 1976.
When Lamont falls in love with a mysterious woman, Fred and Esther play amateur sleuths to learn more about her.
Marlene Clark makes her first series appearance as Janet Lawson, the new woman in the life of Lamont. Nervous around Janet, Fred wants to know more about the woman's mysterious past. This leads into a lengthy spoof of the TV series Columbo, with Fred making like the rumpled, raincoated TV detective -- and with Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page) as his unlikely "girl Friday."
