Curious among those living in Morning Glory Circle is the identity of the person moving in next door to the Stephenses. She is seductively beautiful ex-beauty queen, the single Pleasure O'Riley. Despite Pleasure's outward nature not being an act, Samantha doesn't really appreciate Pleasure's ignorantly blissful helpless girl demeanor, or Darrin's seeming fawning over her at her beck and call because of it. This tension is heightened with the imminent arrival onto the scene of who Pleasure considers the most serious of her ex-boyfriends, pro football player Thunderbolt Swenson, who she has broken up with several times because of his extreme jealousy. Thunderbolt's actual arrival demonstrates the actual danger Pleasure faces from Thunderbolt compared to her fear, and whether her outward statements that she doesn't want to see him matches her true desire.

The house used for the Sally Field
(1965) was located right next door to the Stephens house, and was used in this episode, which featured a new neighbor by the same name moving in next door. See more
Here's my new love seat. No one to share it with me.
Miss O'Reilly, I would think a beauty queen like you would have dozens of hopelessly smitten suitors flinging themselves at your feet and your throne.
Well, naturally, I've been engaged a few times. I guess about sixteen.
And none of them was Mr. Right?
That may seem like a lot, but six of the engagements were to the same fellow. Thor Swenson.
