Episode Summary

The Tomas Crown Affair
This show begins in Madrid, where Louisa goads Michael into trying some candy, which breaks his tooth. A crooked dentist in Spain gives him a crown, adding a smuggled diamond inside. They fly to San Francisco, where Michael is reluctant to go see the dentist recommended to get a permanent crown. This sets up a plot whereby Michael is pursued by agents trying to retrieve the diamond which he is unaware he has. Louisa wants her beloved Corvette back, while Michael is keeping an old model A for a friend. Adding to this episode: George is trying to avoid an old flame, Friday's wanting her lost luggage, and Michael has 'grounded' Louisa until she pays back a debt.moreless

      • Louisa: (Talking about Michael) He never saw Willie Mays hit a ball out of Candlestick Park.

      • Louisa: This is the best (candy) in the world!
        Michael: Louisa, just because you like it doesn't mean that everyone else has to like it.
        Louisa: I know that.
        Michael: No, you don't!
        Louisa: Sure I do.
        Michael: Fine. Then I don't have to try it.
        Louisa: You don't have to like it...You do have to try it.

      • Louisa:(Massaging Michael's shoulder)) I remember the first time your shoulder went out like that.
        Michael: So do I.
        Louisa: If you hadn't lept in to save me from that charging rhino, it never would have happened. Of course, I'd be dead now - so, all things considered, I'm glad you did. (Silence). You're supposed to say, 'me, too.'
        Michael: Hmm?
        Louisa:You're not sorry, are you?
        Michael: Not often. Only when you screw up my life, cause me great bodily harm, or steal things from my friends.
