Storyline

Alice Anne Volkman, Rebecca's old college professor and mentor, is coming by the bar to meet up with Rebecca. Rebecca is in awe of the woman. Despite Rebecca not being the best student and a bit of a suck up, Alice liked her for her sheer determination. Sam sees Alice's visit as an opportunity to pick the brain of a business professor as to ways to buy back the bar. As with Sam and any woman, they end up sleeping together. Rebecca is shocked that her mentor would slum with the likes of Sam. Although a one-nighter in Sam's mind, Rebecca believes that for a woman with the class of Alice, she probably is expecting some sort of commitment from Sam. As it turns out, it too was just a casual fling for Alice. Rebecca, conflicted about her feelings as she feels it showed low morals for someone like Alice to sleep casually with Sam, has to decide whether to stand up to her mentor and risk losing her friendship, or continue to be the suck up she always has been while no longer respecting her. ...

Trivia

Rebecca's old term paper predicted that Jimmy Carter would serve 3 terms as President. This likely wasn't an actual goof by the writers as everyone knows a US President cannot serve more than two terms. This was really a joke directed at Rebecca's expense. See more »

Alexis Smith was nominated for an emmy for this role
18 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Someone should point out that Alexis Smith not only was nominated for an Emmy for this role (Volkman) but was a very talented actress. I invite you to read her very interesting bio on IMDb ! Some of her accomplishments: professional ballet gig at the age of 13. starred opposit Cary Grant in Night and Day. Starred opposite Errol Flynn in 4 movies Tony award for musical Follies nominated for Tony for Platinum Developed a night club act and performed in Los Angelas and in Canada, Was married her whole life to the wonderful Craig Stevens of Peter Gunn Fame.On television, Alexis was seen infrequently from the mid-1950's, sometimes appearing on the same show opposite her husband. She had a recurring role as the homicidal Lady Jessica Montfort in 'Dallas' during the 1984 and 1990 seasons and . It was fitting, or, perhaps, ironic, that her last film role ('The Age of Innocence', 1993) was as a New York socialite, a type of character she had portrayed abundantly in her heyday at Warners.
