George's new stockbroker is quite a ventriloquist, after he introduces the Jeffersons to his dummy, J.P. However, George has second thoughts about him after he learns that he has spent time in a mental institution.
George hires Roy Crandall, a former ventriloquist, as his new stockbroker. When his old stockbroker tells him that Roy spent time in a mental hospital, he regrets this and tries to stop Florence from going out with the man.
