Jeffersons Wiki Script Gold

Coleman Harris was a snobbish, wealthly socialite and business magnate who visits George and Louise in the Season 1 episode of The Jeffersons titled "Former Neighbors". The part of Coleman Harris was played by character actor Santiago González.

The appearance of old Harlem friends Roy & Natalie Simms (played by Ernie Lee Banks and Maye Henderson) threw a monkey wrench into George's plan to impress Harris. When Harris puts down the Simmses simple, down-home ways by insinuating that they were the type of people who lived "lazy on welfare", George defends them, and throws Harris out instead! He also offers Roy, who was out of work at the time, a job in one of his cleaning stores.
