  • Episode Description
  • Maggie's old friend Robin returns briefly from Africa. She visits Maggie at the loft, and is introduced to Mickey and the guys who are fixing up the place. Robin's eccentric outlook on life immediately clashes with Joe's city-boy point of view, and the two look like they will end up as enemies. Maggie tries to mediate a compromise between Robin and Joe, but has to leave briefly to take Mickey to the doctor. When she returns, she notices a big change in Robin and Joe. They are now acting like best friends - in fact, Maggie soon discovers that the two of them are going to go out on a date. Their dates all go well - so well that Robin proposes to Joe just two days before she must leave for Africa. Joe accepts, but is warned by Maggie that Robin has pulled stunts like this before, and usually has left her past boyfriends at the altar with a broken-heart. Joe is upset at Maggie for not being supportive of them. They argue, but eventually make up. On the day of the wedding, Joe is standing there waiting for Robin to show up, but she doesn't. Joe finally realizes that Maggie may be right, but Robin surprises both of them when she does show up. It turns out that she was just running super late. Joe and Robin have a very quick wedding, followed by a quick and tearful goodbye as the newlyweds head off to their new life in Africa.moreless

    • Yet another great closure to explaining why none of the characters return next season. Fogerty and Joe leave for romantic obligations. But what about poor Howard?

    • After being absent from the past 7 episodes, George Clooney(Joe) finally returns with no explanation to where he has been (No wonder it takes so long for them to complete Maggie's loft if the workers are allowed to just take long periods of time off with no explanation). In fact, there is a possibility that this was supposed to be episode 5, which nicely explain why Joe has been gone all those other 7 episodes. For some reason, ABC decided to air this as the season finale.

    • This is Julia Duffy's last appearance as Maggie. She, along with many others, were unhappy with the development of the show and quit at the end of the season. Julia Duffy went on to play Allison Sugarbaker (cousin of Suzanne Sugarbaker) on the series "Designing Women." Julia replaced Delta Burke, whom was fired from the series. But after one season, Julia was written out of the series after fan's claiming that they couldn't accept her as Burke's replacement.
