Kurt -- with whom Sam had gotten into a fight at the Hamburger Hangar early in the episode -- had never had a stable family, always having to leave after a year, and was living in a group home at the time of the events of this episode. When Sam continues to balk about Kurt, Willis explains that had Mr. Drummond not taken him and Arnold in and adopted them, this would have likely been their fate.
