    This episode is immensely enjoyable on many levels; the continued antics of the staff of StuckeyBowl trying to drum up business - obnoxious Phil takes the cake drawing a crowd to see the cast of "Happy Days" - which includes an African-American Fonz! (simply hilarious and the lookalikes are quite funny).

    Ed takes on a case defending a good samaritan being sued by the town for "meter feeding" and meets a potential love interest in prosecutor Bonnie Hane, played by the beautiful Rena Sofer. The courtroom fireworks are but a prelude for the sparks that fly between Ed & Bonnie, much to the chagrin and dismay of Carol Vessey, played by the radiant Julie Bowen. How far will Ed and Bonnie's relationship develop, how jealous will Carol become as she realizes that her emotional denials to Mollie about her true feelings for Ed begin to dawn upon her?

    A very amusing subplot deals with another client of Ed's, an insurance salesman who is fired along with his coworkers by the boss' son of an insurance company for failing to make the "talking fish sing". Greg Edelman portarys the avaricious scion of the insurance company in a meaty role. And Ed's buddy, the good Dr. Burton is convinced that his child's older, latino nanny is harboring a huge crush on him that his wife Nancy finds hysterical - or is it?

    This was such a well-written show, given short shrift by the suits at NBC. Tom Cavanaugh heads a stellar, albeit quirky cast in a show that TV Guide dubbed in the first season - "one of the best shows you're not watching" - and once again, they were proven right. This episode contains the hijinks, humor and pathos so well conceived by creators Jon Beckerman and Rob Burnett. And one can really fall for the characters "hook, Line and Sinker". This is truly my favorite episode of the first season, and could not help become smitten with Rena Sofer, and continue to fall more deeply in love with Julie Bowen. Ah, to be Ed!moreless
