The day Dr. Mark Sloane is to be 'honor' as Man of the Year at the Roast, where comedians makes merciless fun of him in the Jokers Club, which despite its fun-loving name is also a cesspit of envy and blame, Andy Baxter, a sideman who made a surprise appearance grossly insulting the speaker, Lou Summers, and dropping trou he's killed during a very short power break by a knife in the back. While Steve is conducting first interrogations, the killer knocks out Jesse and stabs Lou to death. The crowd provide multiple clues and suspicions, but Mark figures it all out by elimination on accounts of motive and opportunity. Written by KGF Vissers

This episode is my favorite because my name is really LORRAINE KAY. The funny thing is that before this like back in the 80s when Julie Duffy was on Bob Newhart all my friends used to jokingly call me Miss Stephanie because I am blond and had a thing about clothes and shopping and other Miss Stephanie things. So when I saw her playing Lorraine Kay it freaked me out. How cool was that? Plus I love everything Dick Van Dyke does and have since his show in the 60s. I am also a big mystery fiction fan so for me to have one of my favorite actors doing a mystery show was really awesome. I was sorry to see the show end and hope they will do some movies of the week like Murder, She Wrote and other series.
