Uncredited Supporting Actor Is The Star In This One
21 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second half has some very funny moments, saving was looking appear as a so-so-at best episode. A supporting actor, who went uncredited, was the star.....at least to me.

Muldoon is tired of being every guy's "babysitter" for the men's wives because he's so shy and innocent they all trust their women with him. Muldoon then lies about secretly being a ladies man and fakes getting a date at a fancy dinner club. There, he arrives alone, of course, but when the cops follow him to see if he's really on a date, he sits down at a table with two old prim-and-proper folks with their Amish-like daughter.

Muldoon pretends to be part of their group but they see his gun and holster and freak out. They think he's a gangster and the cops outside are ready to nab him. What happens after that is hilarious, thanks in large part to Howard Freeman who plays the father of "Priscilla." (Sybil Lamb, in a mostly-mute-but-funny performance.

Howard is the unsung star of this episode!
