Episode synopsisEdit

Fred suffers amnesia after being bludgeoned with Esther's silver-plated Bible. Having looked death in the face, Fred wants to get his affairs in order and so prepares his last will and testament and summons his friends for its reading.

Episode summaryEdit

It is nothing new when Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page) clobbers Fred (Redd Foxx) with her purse. This time, however, the "weapon" is a bit heavier, thanks to Esther's new silver-plated Bible. Convinced he has been dealt a fatal blow, Fred gathers his family and friends together, intending to divulge the contents of his will.

Note: Julius Harris appears as Fred's doctor. Eric Laneuville makes a final series appearance as Daniel Anderson.
