You did it again, you opened the door.

We're not back home. This is not a small town where everybody loves everybody so you can open the door, this is a big city where everybody hates everybody, so you can't open the door. If everybody loved everybody, then this wouldn't be a big city, it would be a small town. Then you can open the door.
But this is Mr. Simpson, I met him yesterday. I said who was it & he said, 'Mr. Simpson' & sure enough, there he was, Mr. Simpson.

I was only 9 when this was on but I remember it very well. It was one of those true comedies that just flowed so well and was funny naturally. I mean that it is like "Mad about You" in that it got it's humour from real life married situations. One of first true universal comedies on TV.
The chemistry between real life husband & wife Richard Benjaman and Paula Prentiss is a marvel to watch. Then you add in a cast of characters, leading off with the hilarious Jack Cassidy (father of David) and you get a classic sitcom that for some stupid reason did not get renewed for a second season. WHY NOT??
EMMY nominated for Best Actor In A Comedy-Benjaman, Best Actress In A Comedy-Prentiss, Best Supporting Actor In A Comedy-Cassidy and two Best Comedy Writing Emmys(got one).
It would not have been nominated if it wasn't good people. I only hope that I get the chance, as well as others, to see it once again and it get the praise it deserves. Definitely ahead of it's time. WATCH IT!!
