Fred's little sister has a surprise for her big brother
6 December 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"My Brother-in-Law's Keeper" introduced Mary Alice as Fred's little sister Frances (first of two), who arrives at the junkyard with a surprise for her big brother, her white husband, Rodney Victor (Allen Drake, first of three). The bigoted Fred naturally objects to this affront, particularly as 'Snow Whitey' is the affectionate type, freely hugging and kissing everyone in sight. Lamont advises his father not to touch the booze: "I'm ain't gonna drink it, I'm gonna pour it over my body and strike a match to it!" Rodney turns out to be addicted to gambling on the horses, unable to scrounge up any money to bet on his favorite. After one outburst too many from Fred, Rodney storms out and doesn't come back, while the Sanfords soon find their cash reserve missing. Frances and Rodney would return in "Brother, Can You Spare an Act?" while Rodney alone appeared a final time in "Sanford and Gong."
