Episode Info

Veteran character actor Dub Taylor appears as old man Houston, who takes in a pair of blind youngsters who have run away from a local orphanage so that they won't be separated. Houston takes it upon himself to find a couple willing to adopt both orphans. But this proves well nigh impossible for one simple, tragic reason: One of the kids is mute as well as blind, and few potential foster parents are willing to shoulder this additional burden. "The Silent City" features an early performance by future Married...With Children co-star David Faustino.
