The Witness is the tenth episode of Season 6 of Good Times and also the 119th episode overall. Written by Joseph Bonaduce and Bruce Howard as a teleplay from an original story written by Howard, the episode, which was directed by Gerren Keith, premiered on CBS-TV; it originally aired on December 9, 1978.
J.J. witnesses a car accident between Keith and Savannah, Sweet Daddy Williams' girlfriend. Though it was clearly Savannah's fault, Sweet Daddy forces J.J. to keep his mouth shut, regardless of Keith's injuries.
J.J. could pay dearly for witnessing an auto accident.
J.J. (Jimmie Walker) is the only witness to a car accident involving his brother-in-law, Keith (Ben Powers), and girl named Savannah (Beverly Hope Atkinson). Keith naturally expects J.J. to tell the whole truth as to what he saw. But J.J. is also under intense pressure from Savannah's boyfriend, thuggish loan shark Sweet Daddy Williams (Teddy Wilson), to come up with a different story -- or else.
