Ed, who not only is Sam's driver, but his personal valet, who also participates in his crusades, as he comes up to the apartment to alert Sam "We have to hurry if were going to catch that plane!" as he says "Our next stop is in Philadelphia... It's a good town to take over that wheelchair gig!", as he had posed as a wheelchair bound old man who was supposedly "healed" by Sam in a healing service which the Evans and Willona all attended.
