About Lou TurnerEdit
The spry Lou, who competed in the local Senior Olympics, winning every event for the past 3 years, is a sure-fire bet to win again; Fred, who's worried about losing Donna to him, in thinking that she and Lou were an item, seeks to compete against him in the Olympics, and does win, but only by default as he had no one to compete against, seeing that no one wanted to challenge Lou, who was suckered out of competing due to a threat to burglarize his store. Alas, the threat was given by the equally worried about the out-of shape Fred Grady, whose voice Lou unknowingly heard as the phone caller to his store who used a funny saying "Goo, Poobly, Poo", which was Grady's familiar exclamation "Good Goobly Goop!"
When Fred challenges Lou in arm wrestling, Fred appears to win after a struggle with the well-fit, strong armed Lou, exclaims to Donna, who with Lamont disproved of Fred's involvement in the Olympic competition to begin with, "Look at the thrill of victory...and the agony of defeat!" But, not to be outdone, Lou, wnen feigning a sore arm in the loss, and in leaving the Sanford residence with Donna, sharply "salutes" Fred for his beating him at armwrestling, then curls back into a feigned "sick" appearance!
