Breaker, Breaker is the eighth episode of Season 5 of Good Times, and the 93rd series episode overall. Written by Elroy Scwhartz, the episode, which was directed by Gerren Keith, premiered on CBS-TV, originally airing on November 9, 1977.


Michael has fun pretending to be J.J. while using a CB radio. But the girl he meets over the airwaves doesn't disclose everything about herself.


Gaining access to Bookman's citizen's band radio (remember those?), Michael (Ralph Carter) decides to line up a few dates by posing as his older brother J.J. Using this "handle," Michael connects with another CB enthusiast, who identifies herself as "Fun Girl." Describing herself as the ultimate in sexy sensuality, Fun Girl neglects to mention that she is a paraplegic, confined to a wheelchair. Sharon Brown, the daughter of series regular Johnny Brown (Bookman), guest stars in this poignant episode.

Plot summaryEdit
