EDIT
Living Dangerously
AIRED:
Richard tries to get his job back, and they call Laura to bring him home. While there, she sees a suicide note in the garbage, and decides to move back in. Val's publisher changes the name of her book to "Capricorn Crude", and hires Joe to be the editor. Val asks Gary to go to her publishing party, but he says no because he's mad about the book. At lunch, Karen and Lilimae see Abby and Gary coming out of an apartment together. Lilimae tells Gary she saw this and will tell Val if he won't go with her to the party. Gary agrees to go to the party, but that night he's at the apartment with Abby, who won't let him leave. At the party, Val's very upset about Gary not showing up. Karen leaves and Val sees her and follows. Karen goes to the apartment and bangs on the door until Gary and Abby finally let her in. The door is open and Val walks in and sees what's going on.

      • (Gary banging the door)
        Gary: Val, open the door. Valene. Valene, we got to talk. Valene, Valene, we got to talk. Valene, damn it, open the door. Valene.

        (Valene leaving her house and dumping Gary out because of his affair with wicked Abby!)
        Gary: Val, Valene, you don't understand. We can talk, we have to talk. Honey, listen to me please. No, we've been together too long, now listen. It's not like that. Look, we got to talk, we have to sit down and talk. Valene, damn it, stop the car and listen to me. Valene, Valene . . .
        Val: (Sobbing while driving in the car)
        Gary: Val, Val.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Gary is faced with the same dilemma as Kenny's affair to Sylvie on eps. 12-13, on the very 1st season, to not respond to his own wife. In that same episode, after Gary's affair to Abby had gone too far and that he wanted to talk to Val about his behavior, it was too late. We won't get to see what really caused the affair, just 3 episodes later as to why Gary should've never done it in the first place before the couple gets a divorce. And eight years later, after a number of affairs and another failed marriage, Gary will win Val back at the end of the 1989-90 season.

      • In this season finale, Val finally sees the truth about Gary and Abby and leaves him.
