    Does anyone by chanceknow or rememberMary Beth Lacey's birth last name? I think it was Virgil or Verglessen, but I am not sure. Something Germanic Jewish, I think. If anyone knows or can point me to a link, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance! BTW, love how Mary Beth's forefinger shoots out and she sometimes waves it while she's making a point. Funny and cute.

    Mary Beth Lacey's father was played by the actor Richard Bradford. Depending on the source the spelling of the character's name differs but is either Martin 'ZIBISKI' (TV.Com/Hollywood.com) or 'ZZBISKE' (IMDB) (Filmreference.com/Yahoo!Movies spell it 'Zabriskie' but this is not how the name is pronounced in the series). He appeared in three episodes: Friendly Fire (198, Secrets (1987) and Post Partum (1986) as well as one of the four reunion film:
