Fred's latest rival
9 December 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"The Olympics" opens with Fred planning a romantic evening with Donna, who already has a date with liquor store owner Lou Turner (Percy Rodrigues). His new rival impresses Donna as a participant in the Senior Olympics, winning last year's decathlon. Even Grady is familiar with 'Big Lou' Turner, convincing Fred to win a gold medal himself if his opponent doesn't kill himself first. Lamont not only thinks that it won't impress Donna, he also worries that his father might hurt himself. With Grady as his coach, Fred is lucky to do one push up: "would you please help me up?" Rollo takes one look at his outfit and compares him to Friar Tuck!
