    "The Lunch Money Rip-Off" finds Michael tormented by classmate Eddie (Douglas Grant, previously seen in "JJ and the Gang"), who has been stealing not only his lunch every day but also his quarter for milk. James wonders what happened to all the food that used to be in his fridge, while JJ admits that he was forced to eat a "ghetto jam sandwich, two pieces of white bread jammed together!" Michael's story of giving his lunch away to 'a poor kid' doesn't wash with his father, who wants to see him 'drive on his face!' More in line with Florida, who doesn't want her son to fight, he decides to bring Eddie home for the weekend, reasoning that the boy couldn't steal from someone who helps him. The Evans household turns out to be an improvement on Eddie's home life, lacking a live-in father, James delighting in disciplining the new recruit in one of three ways of spanking, according to JJ: "the regular, the super, and the Big Mac" Michael: "the Big Mac is right, it can really warm your buns!" Since he's still able to walk, JJ figures he didn't get the Big Mac!
