|List of Good Times seasons/episodes|
Michael decides to move out of the apartment to have more freedom. Florida doesn't want him to leave and has a fit when she discovers he plans to have a white girl as a roommate.
Good Times briefly moved from its Saturday-night slot to Wednesday for this sixth season episode. Michael Evans (Ralph Carter) shocks his family, in general, and his mom Florida (Esther Rolle), in particular, when he announces that he wants to move into his own apartment "for more space." What really has Florida up in arms is Michael's new roommate -- an attractive young white girl. Janet Jackson (Penny Woods) does not appear in this episode.
The Evans apartment feels crowded with Thelma and Keith still living there after their marriage. In addition, things continue to fall apart. Michael decides he can help the situation by moving into his own apartment - with a white girl.
