  • Rose is reluctant to go on a date, though it has been 15 years since her husband Charlie died. She finally agrees to go on a cruise with Arnie Peterson, but gets cold feet when he wants to sleep with her. Can Rose overcome her fear?

    This is the first of many episodes to be written by Barry Fanaro and Mort Nathan. This is a clever plot and lets the audience delve into the mind of naive Rose Nylund. We are also treated to the reasons behind her vulnerability and innocence. There are many classic lines and moments in this episode. This is definitely a real treat!
