After Buddy and Sally catch Rob dictating his memoirs, he tells them the story on which he is currently working: the less than romantic lead-up to his and Laura's honeymoon. As soon as Rob recovered from the illness and sprained ankle injury leading up to his wedding, he and Laura wanted to go on their honeymoon, settling for the nearby third-rate Lakeview Lodge before Laura's USO show moved on to the next army camp; however, due to a theft of wine, Captain Lebost revoked all off-camp passes, with no further passes issued until the thief was caught. Rob, determined to have this romantic time with his new wife, risked getting caught AWOL to do so. The problems: how to sneak off the base, and, once at the lodge, how to make it a romantic getaway in light of the shabby resort and it's boisterous owner, Mrs. Campbell.

The late great Kathleen Freeman
30 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this episode. It stood out because of the wonderful performance of the late great Kathleen Freeman. She practically stole the show as the wife of the motel owner where Rob and Laura spend their honeymoon. She repeatedly refers to her husband as "stupid fool". The line that really brought down the house was when she says "all I ever hear from him is you're beautiful, you're beautiful. She was never beautiful but talented and had real comic timing. Kathleen Freeman had a long career on stage, screen, and television. She is remembered for small parts that stood out. From the mother superior on Golden Girls, another nun "the Penguin" in Blues Bros, to an unforgettable part in Dragnet "'Bout time you pencil-dicks showed up. Why couldn't you have gotten here before that big bad stupid-looking piece of sewage breath stole my white wedding dress?"
