|List of Good Times seasons/episodes|
Thelma is in love with Keith, a promising football player who's signing a million dollar contract to play for the Chicago Bears. After he proposes marriage, Thelma calls her mother in Arizona to get her permission.
Thelma comes home from a date and tells her family she is in love, and thinks Keith loves her too. She invites Keith to dinner at their home, and he proposes to her. Florida returns home from Arizona and gives her approval for the marriage. Written by Bernie.
The sixth season of Good Times opened with a three-part story (later edited as a four-parter for syndication), in which Esther Rolle returns to the series in the role of Florida Evans. Minus her second husband, Carl (whose absence is never explained, nor is Carl ever referred to again), Florida leaves her Arizona home to return to the Evans family apartment in Chicago, where daughter Thelma (BernNadette Stanis) is preparing to marry Heisman Trophy-winning football player Keith Anderson (Ben Powers, in his first series appearance). In addition to serving as the season opener, "Florida's Homecoming" represented Good Times' schedule change from Tuesday to Saturday night.
