Florida doesn't know how to turn down the furnace repairman (Ron Glass) who has his eye on her. It causes problems between Florida and her husband Henry (John Amos) after Henry spies the repairman dancing with Florida. Maude and Walter would rather he finish work on their furnace.
The lazy furnace repairman, Whitnauer Fulton (Ron Glass), has been showing an interest in Florida, and she doesn't quite know what to do about his advances. This situation ultimately causes marital problems between Florida and her husband, Henry, when he catches her dancing with the man. Meanwhile, Maude and Walter are finding it hard to get Whitnauer to hurry it up on the furnace.
