On one of his bratty son Eric's annual visits, the plutocrat U.S. Bates takes him to his department store and offers him anything in it as a gift. Eric chooses a black janitor who has made him laugh with his antics. At first the man suffers many indignities as Eric's "toy", but gradually teaches the lonely boy what it is like to have and to be a friend.

U.S. Bates: "Eric bought a black man. -U.S. Bates"
U.S. Bates: "The truth has nothing to do with reality. -U.S. Bates"
Jack: "If you want a friend, you don't buy a friend, Eric, you earn a friend through love and trust and respect. -Jack"
Eric: "You made me laugh. I wanted a friend who made me laugh. -Eric"
Eric: "What do you do with...your thing? -Eric"
U.S. Bates: "We don't like our waitresses to have hairy lips. -U.S. Bates"
Jack: "Do you have a license to drive a car down the steps? -Jack"
