Plot Overview

Temporarily impotent, George desperately tries to hide his condition from wife Louise as he seeks out all manner of "cures," from aphrodisiacs to therapy.


  • With the show now on Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. EST, the producers served up an episode that would never have passed muster in "family hour."
  • This episode was spoofed over 20 years later on The Rerun Show, with Marla Gibbs making a startling guest appearance.
