  • Episode Description
  • To break Helen's "no dating pilots" rule, Brian hires an actor to play Helen's dream date, a man perfect in every way except for the fact he's a pilot. Meanwhile, Roy's idea to keep in touch with Lowell by walkie talkie proves unsuccessful, as Lowell uses it more for fun than actual communication.

    • Joe: Alright, say you get a date what's next?
      Brian: I don't know, Joe, I'm not you. I don't need to know everything in advance. I don't need to know that we're having chicken next Tuesday night for dinner.
      Joe: Roast pork. It'll never work Brian.

    • Helen: Don't pucker up like Dudley-Do-Right, just relax your lips.

    Trivia (2)

    • Trivia: The ending of this episode is basically an exact copy of the ending to the Cheers episode "Sisterly Love," which premiered just a year before this episode. Both endings involved a gun and a fake death.

    • Goof: In the scene where Fay is talking to Lowell on the walkie-talkie she is properly holding down the mic key when she speaks, but in the middle of the scene she does not use the mic key at all and yet is still able to transmit to Lowell.
