    Rose considers moving in with a man who "knew" Charlie.

    I thought this was a great episode, because it proved just how much Rose really loved Charlie. I felt so bad when I learned that the guy was using her, and it made it all the more special because Rose didn't catch on and that look in her eye was just all about admiring a man she thought knew her late husband. Although I did not like the character of Buddy at all, I think it was nice that he gave her back the pocket watch and left her with her memories. I thought it was beautiful when Rose was in her bed at the end and she says "Goodnight, Charlie. I love you." That was so beautiful.moreless

    In this episode, Rose is visited by an old army buddy of her late husband Charlie's named Buddy. He then takes Rose around and professes his love for her, and then asks her to move back home.

    I like this episode. It has some interesting plot devices in it. Many of these characters you see on television are hardly ever talked about, unless they play a big part in something. But this episode takes a look at Rose's trust and decision-makings. Also, it has some very witty things going on in the background. But at the same time, this episode keeps its main plot just that--main. It doesn't bury it in other types of crappy subplots. It stays true to its form. You can't help but feel sorry for poor Rose as you watch her go through this. A must-see for any Golden Girls fan.moreless

    Poor Rose. . .

    This episode is different. You do not laugh at Rose\'s vulnerability in this episode. Instead, you feel sorry for her, as this man is trying to take great advantage of her. You begin to feel bad for her because you know her character is not aware of what is going on to her. A well written episode if I do say so.
