Louise is heartbroken when she discovers that the city is planning to tear down the building she grew up in. This leads her to make one last visit to her childhood home where she quickly remembers special memories of her mother and of her wedding day.


When The Jeffersons' new furniture for their living and dining room arrives, one of the delivery men informs Weezie that the block of buildings she grew up around in Harlem - including the building she lived in - will be demolished for new development. She then visits her old, abandoned apartment there one last time, while thinking about some of the times she spent there.
