Peter, a junior executive at a New York business, figures out that single men at his company are generally passed over in favor of married men, who the top execs think are more stable. So Peter asks his friend and upstairs neighbor, Greta, if she'd be willing to pose as his wife for company functions. She agrees, not knowing how it'd affect her personal life. And whenever someone from his company unexpectantly dropped by "their" apartment, Peter would run up the fire escape two floors to fetch Greta, much to the bemusement of their neighbor in-between.

I too loved this show as a teenager. It didn't last long but I remember it well. I thought I might be the only one who did until I looked it up and read the other reviews. It was a funny show with what I thought was a lot of potential for hilarious episodes. There was a lot of climbing in and out of windows and a lot of close calls when they were almost caught in separate apartments or with other people. It seemed to fit with the popular situation comedies of the time (Bewitched, That Girl, I Dream of Jeannie). I've always wondered why it didn't catch on. I wonder what was on the other networks at the same time. Would that explain why it was overlooked? I don't know if I would feel the same if I saw the episodes today but I would love to give it a try.
