Tom's father dies and leaves a warehouse to Alan, with the specific condition that he may not sell it to anyone on his father's side of the family. Meanwhile, the Help Center can't afford a rent increase, and George's laundry presser has raised his prices.
George decides that he needs a cleaning factory and sets out to find a place for it. Meanwhile, Alan Willis returns to New York and learns that he has inherited a warehouse from his grandfather. Seeing that the warehouse would be perfect for his factory, George goes all out to try to get it, even allowing Alan to move in with the Jeffersons due to squabbling between Alan and Tom.
