  • Episode Description
  • Nell and Joey go to New Orleans where Nell sees a man she hasn't seen in 15 years. The two take Joey to the World's Fair, and when they go to visit a jazz club, he proposes to her. She is baffled by his proposal and doesn't know what to say. As this is happening, a man is watching Joey in the jazz club. When Joey finally sees him looking at him, he goes to Nell and tells her he thinks that the man is his father. The man happily says "Joey" as Joey says "Dad", and the two embrace, as Nell stares in shock.moreless

    • Other credited guests, who are most likely not stars, and haven't appeared on any other shows, are Lamora Nellis, Bruce B. Levy, Nat Pierce, Jesse John Sales, Norman J. Bowden, Arthur W. Edwards and Charles L. Thomas. They are most likely singers in the choir, and band members at the end.

    • As this season opened, Lara Jill Miller had blossomed into a young lady; thus ending her tom-boy days and sitting on people's laps. She had gone through puberty and was told by costume designers to get a whole new wardrobe to fit the "new her" as she mentioned on the E! True Story.

    • Nell sings "Everytime I Feel The Spirit Floating In My Heart I Pray" along with a choir at the World's Fair, and also sings "Ain't Nobody's Buisness If I do" as good ol' Charlie Johnson plays the piano in the jazz club in New Orleans.

    • Dolph Sweet and Lauri Hendler do not appear in this episode.
