About The SimmsesEdit

Roy and Natalie, who were old neighbors of the Jeffersons when they lived in Harlem, had planned to visit George and Louise at the same time a wealthly socialite named Coleman Harris (Santiago González) was to visit, which 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.
