  • In this episode, Rose is visited by an old army buddy of her late husband Charlie's named Buddy. He then takes Rose around and professes his love for her, and then asks her to move back home.

    I like this episode. It has some interesting plot devices in it. Many of these characters you see on television are hardly ever talked about, unless they play a big part in something. But this episode takes a look at Rose's trust and decision-makings. Also, it has some very witty things going on in the background. But at the same time, this episode keeps its main plot just that--main. It doesn't bury it in other types of crappy subplots. It stays true to its form. You can't help but feel sorry for poor Rose as you watch her go through this. A must-see for any Golden Girls fan.
