George Moneybags Utley
4 May 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Dick finds out George has $50,000 in the bank and Dick encourages him to spend and live it up a little.

This begins with a scene with George telling Dick that his paycheck bounced, setting up a funny running joke throughout the episode. Michael and Stephanie rib him about the bounced check, which turns out to be a bank error. J.J. shows up with some donated groceries when he hears that Dick and Joanna are "on the skids". Funniest scene is the final one when the townsfolk show up in a parody of the final scene from "It's A Wonderful Life".
