It's really a darn shame that Different Strokes stalled after Season 4 because the Bicycle Man two parter of Season 5 was probably the most famous episode of the entire series. While not the most uplifting episode, it is one of the best acted of the series, and the message of the show still holds true today.

And, on a lighter note, if they had continued the seasons, we would have gotten more Janet Jackson.... which ain't too shabby.

I haven't seen that episode since I was a kid........but it is indeed etched in my brain.  But you're right, it was definitely the most memorable of the series.
