When she arrives at the college, Samantha is stunned to see her, and she begins to barge in on student's lives. She sits in on an English class of Sam's, and Professor Dudley gets upset with her when he mentions the title of his book and she tells him her publishing company turned it down a while back. Afterwards, she meets a boy named Keith who wants to switch his career from teaching to fashion design, but can't stand up to his father, who is actually Professor Dudley. As Sam and Nell are about to go to bed as Sam tells her a secret she has been keeping from her. She is in love with a student named Eric, and they are going to drop out of college and get married and move to South Dakota, where the two will live on a farm and he will work on his novel "The Hayloft", since he doesn't have enough money to stay in school.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • This two-part episode was produced to give network executives a preview of a possible seventh season, with the focus on Nell being a mentor to Samantha and her friends.  Ultimately, the decision was made to cancel the series, likely because NBC already had chosen to debut another sitcom set on a college campus at the start of the Fall 1987 season: "A Different World."
