Looking for an episode of "The Jeffersons" with a clown waiter

I remember a scene in The Jeffersons with George at a restaurant. It must be some kind of circus-themed restaurant, because his waiter is a clown. George gets angry with someone at the table and calls him a bozo. The clown waiter comes to the table, and says, "Yes?" "Not you!" George screams.

I need to know what episode this is. It's probably from one of the later seasons.

Hi J.,

I believe this is the episode that you are looking for:
The Jeffersons (TV Series) Louise's Old Boyfriend (1979)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0614913/

Florence decides to impersonate Louise and the result is a three-ring circus. While Louise lingers, uncertain about keeping a 35-year-old "date" with her first boyfriend, Florence seizes the chance to be "Mrs. Jefferson" and keeps it herself.

Gary Schwartz  plays a Clown in the episode. This is the only episode of The Jeffersons that a clown appears.

There's also a Maitre d', which makes it even more likely to be correct.

That's the one. My memory was only slightly off. The clown was just a performer at the restaurant, not a waiter.
