Ten year old Roberto, Julio's nephew, displays a shrewd sales sense, as he persuades a customer (Corinne Conley) to purchase a lamp which Fred and Lamont seek to sell to her for $20, pretending that it was a lamp which he used to study with; when the customer agrees to buy it for $30 instead of the original price, Roberto, who takes credit for the sale, asks Fred for his $10; Fred, in response, says to Roberto "You've got a fine head on your shoulders...Wanna see it on the floor?"
When the principal of the new school Roberto attends (Graham Brown) intends to keep him back a grade because of his trouble keeping up with the other students in English, Fred helps he and his mother Carlotta lobby to keep him in the 5th grade by persuading the principal to tutor him after school.
