Episode Summary

Caroline and the Kink
When Richard shows up wearing a ridiculous shirt Julia forced him to wear, Caroline advises him to talk to her frankly about the compromises inherent in marriage - and Julia leaves him. Meanwhile, Charlie is upset that Del still treats him as an underling rather than a partner, and Annie tries to cope with unemployment by finishing The Grapes of Wrath - which she started in eighth grade.moreless

      • This episode replaced the previously scheduled "Caroline and the Novelist;" I have as yet not been able to discover its proper title.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Annie: (to Richard) Good luck Tin Man. I hope the Wizard finds your heart.
        This is an allusion to the musical film The Wizard of Oz (1939) based on the novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

      • (Richard takes off his jacket and reveals a hilarious futuristic shirt) Annie: What the hell are you wearing?
        Richard: It's a present from my wife. And I like it.
        Caroline: Well, live long and prosper.
        (Caroline and Annie are doing the Vulcan salute)
        The Vulcan blessing and its typical hand gesture is used by the half-Vulcan Mr. Spock, a character in the sci-fi series Star Trek. The Vulcan salute has become a sign among Trekkers all over the world.
