  • No fault divorce, American style.

    Mike and Sally take sides with a husband and wife, respectively, two close friends of theirs, who are contemplating divorce. During the proceedings, Mike and Sally come close to calling off their own wedding. The young couple are in court awaiting their case to be heard, accompanied by Mike and Sally, when another young couple has their turn. This young husband and wife are constantly at odds, but when the judge grants the divorce, they look at each other briefly, as if they're sad to see each other go. After watching the case, Mike and Sally's friends, and Make and Sally themselves, have second thoughts. The look the young newly divorced couple gives each other after the judge's ruling is a very poignant moment, not unusual for M3S. Their marriage has just ended. It was still considered a fairly big deal when this episode aired. Sadly, not anymore.
