  • A Man for Half a Season
    Frank's father, Michael Miller, asks him a favor: his secretary, Jeanette Hardesty, wants to find out what has happened to her husband Mel, who mysteriously disappeared some years back. With the help of the beautiful Kari, Steve learns that Mel had $100,000 debts with his bookmaker, so he had to take "a bath" in the Atlantic. Jeanette is relieved to know the truth but Michael is not at all sad; at last he can propose to Jeanette, whom he has secretly been in love with for over 20 years. The famous scientist Darryl Mosier has invented a substance, which eliminates all human aggressiveness. It could bring peace to the world. But Mosier is afraid of thieves and assassins and deposits some of the liquid with Total Security. Robbie accidentally spills some of the liquid, and he and George start getting very friendly. Steve is also exposed to it, and while protecting Mosier from assassins at the Seven Palms Hotel, he actually makes friends with Luis. Warren and Faye Liebling (ep. 6) contact Jody and tells her that Karen Diebolt has kidnapped the baby she was going to let them adopt. Faye is nearly hysterical but Jody quickly tracks down Karen. Karen won't give her baby to the Lieblings and accuses Warren of only going along with the adoption because Faye is so keen on the idea. Warren admits and Faye is crushed. With the Lieblings out of the picture, Jody asks their lawyer, Barry Gilroy, if she can adopt the baby. Gilroy explains it's unlikely since she's not married. However, Frank suddenly proposes to Jody and she happily agrees. Everyone at Total Security are surprised when a psychiatrist appears and explains that Mosier is an escaped patient from a mental institution. "The assassin" was another escaped patient. Mosier is brought back but what made everyone so nice if it wasn't Mosier's liquid?moreless
