It's been years since Gary Coleman asked Willis what he was talking about, but the hit show "Diff'rent Strokes" still resonates in television history. In the show, a rich widower adopts his housekeeper's two sons. The show premiered in 1978 and was actor Gary Coleman's claim to fame, as he played the mischievous character Arnold.
