Episode cast overview:
Madolyn Smith Osborne ...
Dr. Sheila Rydell


Sam hits on a beautiful woman in the bar, she who promptly shoots him down. She is Dr. Sheila Rydell, a clinical psychiatrist and a colleague of the Drs. Crane. Because she shot him down, Sam wants her even more. Cliff suggests that he approach her on a professional level: that he should make an appointment to see her with some psychiatric problem. Despite the touchy nature of the issue itself, Carla convinces Sam to use the problem of impotence, as all women love to help a man solve such a problem. He does go in to see her at her office and she sees right through his story. When he confesses that he made up the story just to see her again and to ask her out, she accepts, thinking that the clinical part of her job is creeping a little too much into her personal life. As they spend some personal time together, they may have some problem separating their professional and personal relationships. Written by Huggo

What's Up, Doc? (#7.18)
6 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam decides to hit on the first woman hat comes into the bar and it ends up being Dr. Sheila Rydell . A friend of the Cranes. She is not into Sam but he tries anyways, even coming to her office and claim to be impotent. She goes out on a date with him and at the end he asks her psychological opinion of him She says that he is a guy who is not interested in anything but sex in his life.

Not a bad episode. Out of all the women Sam hits on this is probably the best scenario. Her way of handling the situation in her office was very funny. And her diagnosis of him is pretty correct, at least in the past few seasons he didn't think of anything but sex. Stooges don't help here.
