  • In this episode, the 4 pricipals agree to give up their vices:

    7.7
    Vera (cigarettes - who knew she smoked?); Alice (chocolate) Mel (gambling) Flo (coffee)all agree to give up their bad habits for 48 hours. Each tries to cheat. Alice invites all of them to her apartment for the weekend to keep an eye on each other. Moderatetly funny and predictable. The I Love Lucy influence is visible here again. (Remember Rock Hudson in Palm Springs?)
