Episode summaryEdit

Can it be? Fred Sanford, a man constitutionally unwilling to perform any form of physical exertion, is about to compete in the Senior Olympics? Yes, it's true -- and it is all because Fred doesn't want to lose his erstwhile fiancée Donna Harris (Lynn Hamilton) to venerable but virile athlete Lou Turner (Percy Rodrigues).
