Darryl Harper (Darryl Sivad) has recently given up a job writing advertising jingles to be a teacher in an inner-city school. He’s married to Virginia (Penny Johnson), a medical student.
They live in an apartment building owned by Virginia’s dad, Phil (Bill Cobbs) and every so often – say, once every three seconds – Phil makes a barbed comment about Darryl’s lack of gumption (“I have to get to work, Mr Schoolteacher. Some of us have careers that don’t involve doing the hokeypokey”.)
Billy Dee Willis
