Mother Jefferson's Boyfriend was the eighth episode of The Jeffersons TV series, also the 8th episode of Season 1. Directed by Jack Shea and co-written by Gordon Carr and Arnold Kane, it made its premiere on CBS-TV on March 8, 1975.
Mother Jefferson has big news for her birthday: her new boyfriend has proposed, and they plan on moving to Florida. George objects to this holy union and tries to break the lovebirds apart.
Louise tells George that his mother and her boyfriend of two weeks are thinking about marrying and moving to Florida. George thinks that the man is a fortune-hunter trying to go through Mother Jefferson to get George's money. Turns out that Herbert, who, unlike Mother Jefferson, was not thinking about remarrying, but was only in love with the idea of being in love, and is only thinking about maintaining a friendship with her.
