Episode Summary

EDIT
Miss Janie Regrets
Steven is watching public television as he serves himself some cold cereal (while imitating Julia Child). It is revealed that he is infatuated with children's TV star Miss Janie Hathaway, and before long Pepper is too. When Miss Janie announces a drawing contest where the winner gets to have breakfast with her, Steven and Pepper enter, claiming Steven is the uncle of a boy whose mother recently died. They win, and Steven gets prepared for a romantic meal. However, when Miss Janie arrives, she proves not to be as sweet as she seems, and she suspects Steven just brought her over to further an acting career. She has him help her an audition for a soap opera, which calls for her to kiss him passionately. She also invites him to her one-woman show, "I, Karen: The Beat Did Not Go On", an avant-garde musical about Karen Carpenter playing at the Justine Bateman playhouse. Steven attends the show, which he finds so boring that he drifts to sleep and dreams himself starring in a one-man show about Mark Twain (where he plays the banjo and duckwalks). Miss Janie points out that Peter Lupus is in the audience, but even then Steven decides not to stay for the second act. He is so fed up with the show that he throws away all of his Carpenters records! He admits to Pepper the next morning that he wouldn't have stayed for the second act even if she took off her clothes, pulled him onstage, had sex with him, but Pepper disagrees. They turn on the radio and hear about Kathleen McClure (otherwise known as Miss Janie) receiving a grant for her one-woman show, "I Karen", which includes a controversial second act in which (you guessed it) she takes off her clothes, pulls a man onstage, and has sex with him. Pepper attends the next show, and gets lucky!!!moreless
