34-11-16 Mr. Powers' Bicycle and the Shed

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
The Gooks have a shed in their backyard.  Since they aren't using it, Sade has rented the shed to Mr. Powers, who is a boarder in Mis' Harris' house.

The shed has been rented out on the cheap - a mere 15 cents per month.  Despite the frugality of the rent, Mr. Powers has had the bike in there three months and has only paid 15 cents.

Furthermore, Mr. Powers has made a habit of sitting out in the shed in the evenings, smoking his pipe.

To top it off, Sade has asked him not to ride his bike on the Gook lawn - but he's done so anyway and has made grooves in the lawn.

After talking it over with Vic, she's decided to revoke his use of the shed.  She calls him up to tell him.  He cries.

Instead of making her empathetic, this angers Sade even more.

This is one of the few times we see/hear about a bad person rather than a strange person on the show.  Mr. Powers, while not a murderer, is still 'a bad guy' because Sade has bent over backwards for him and treats him more than fair and he still treats her badly.
