  • Leslie's high school sweetheart stops by to see her and ends up proposing. It seems she is the only thing he's not been able to overcome or own in his lifetime and this is what drives him the most. Kirk is terribly jealous.moreless

    It's very cold in Vermont this time of year. One of the funnier bits in this episode is when Joanna convinces Dick to take a walk in the brisk cold air outside. They leave and are back about five minutes later confessing that they made it about forty feet out down the driveway and back before it got too cold. Dick says they eventually may be able to get the mail!



    The rest of the episode is standard sitcom stuff. The overzealous old flame, the idiotic current admirer, and the nice girl who gets pushed into something and then backs out when she comes to her senses.



    There was one funny other bit with George and a welcome mat but when you have to mention that kind of thing you know you are heading toward rock bottom. I fondly remember this show. Unfortunately so far other than the very first episodes I can't remember why now. I'm sure it must improve as the season and seasons go on. Honestly if this was produced today they might be talking about pulling it at this point. Thanks for reading...moreless
