    I used to watch"One Day at a Time"when I was in my teens. Wasn't there a young dorky male character with a southern accent who was a close friend of the family. That character stands out in my mind but I can't remember the name of the actor or the character. I think he would have been on the showin the early years and he would have been in his 20's at the time.

    This is driving me crazy so please help.

    I can't think of the actor's name, but his character was named Bob. If you go to particular episodes, you will find out the actor's name. He was blond and dug Barbara. I always thought it was Matthew Modine, but I was wrong.

    His name is John Putch, and he is the real life son of Jean Stapleton, who played Edith Bunker on All In The Family.

    There was David Kane played by Richard Masur.. He was a firiend of the family and Ann's on again / off again boyfriend for the first season and the early part of season 2. He lived upstairs in the same apartment building. Ann mentioned in one of his last episodes that David was 28 and she was 35, but Masur was 27. He had just turned 27 before the December 1975 premiere of the first season and he left the show just before his 28th birthday 7 episodes into season 2 when his character moved to California. He and Ann were planning to get married and they were all going to move to California in the two part episode, David's New Job, but they called off the wedding at the last minute and David went to California alone. His character did return for one more episode as a guest star, but it was 4 1/2 seasons later at the end of season 6.
