  • Episode Description
  • The Mommy & Me group is not happy with Mickey after he starts hitting the other babies and taking away their toys. Maggie exhausts herself out trying to teach and reason with Mickey that his behavior is unacceptable. But Mickey won't listen, and eventually mother and son get into a big argument. She takes Mickey to see Dr. Fleisher(Elliot) to see if maybe he knows what to do. Elliot says that Mickey probably needs a father figure, and finally asks Maggie out for a date. Maggie is not very convinced that Elliot was being serious about having feelings for her, and she's right. It turns out that he does not have strong feelings for Maggie, but instead really loves Mickey and wants him to have a father. Maggie is thankful for Elliot and says that he will be the perfect father figure for Mickey, even without romantic ties to her. Mickey finally decides that his behavior is not good when he and Maggie are about to take a family portrait together. Mickey apologizes to Maggie in the only way he can - "baby talk."moreless

    • It is possible that the romantic storyline between Maggie and Elliot was abruptly written out of the series because by this time, Julia Duffy expressed her unhappiness with the show's development and opted not to return for a second season. Putting closure on this storyline allowed for a smooth flow to next season's changes. (Glad they ended the romance with a reason instead of just leaving it with no explanation like some series do.)

    • Goerge Clooney(Joe) does not appear in this episode.
