Percy Rodrigues and Kim Hamilton
7 January 2017 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Florida's Rich Cousin" opens with James still stewing over his wife's gall bladder operation, which now includes JJ's dental bill of $325 for 'a mere 12 cavities!' Grounding everyone within earshot (even Willona!), James' foul mood does not improve at the thought of Florida inviting her cousin Edgar Edwards (Percy Rodrigues) over for dinner with his wife Betty (Kim Hamilton), fairly well off and usually able to grant a loan when the Evans family is particularly desperate. The proud James is especially stubborn this time, walking out on Florida before Edgar even shows up, still smarting at having to borrow money just like they did 20 years before. Edgar has a surprise for Florida, fired from his 20 year position for the past three months. Worst of all, he's had to lie to Betty about potential job prospects, leaving the house every day only to go to the movies. Percy Rodrigues is remembered by STAR TREK fans for the classic episode "Court Martial."
