When Fred's friend Elroy can't find a date, Fred's inspired to launch his latest get rich quick scheme: an escort service for seniors.

Episode summaryEdit

Ever seeking out new sources of income, Fred applies for work at an escort service, only to be bluntly informed that he is "too homely" for such work. Hoping to prove that he is still catnip to women, Fred opens up his own escort business, with his equally unlovely pals Hutch (Arnold Johnson) and [[Elroy Pitt}Elroy]] (George Wiltshire) as his stable of "studs." As always, Fred finds that what seems easy in theory is next to impossible in reality.

Note: Helen Martin makes the first of two appearances on the series. Frances E. Nealy makes a second appearance, Lauren Jones appears as Marlene, and Betty Cole appears as Maxine.
