Storyline

Rob, Sally and Buddy have to make some last minute changes to this week's show, since their guest is no longer actress Sophia Loren, but rather crooner Ric Vallone. Rob and Buddy oblige Sally by allowing her to have their evening dinner meeting be just her and Ric, despite Ric having the reputation of being a confirmed bachelor. Ric and Sally spend much of their time together for the week. Buddy believes Sally is smitten with Ric. After she sees the two together, Laura concurs, but she doesn't think Ric feels the same way about Sally. Feeling that the twosome is in part his doing, Rob wants to know exactly what is going on between them. When Rob does get the full picture, he, with Ric's assistance, has to come up with a way to protect the fragile psyche of his friend, Sally. What Rob and Ric don't fully understand is the female psyche, period. Written by Huggo

Trivia

Goofs

In the writers' office, Ric Vallone is visibly singing to piano accompaniment (alternately played by Sally and Rob), yet the sound track backing Ric is that of a full studio jazz band. Also, Rob and Sally's (Dick and Rose's) styles of faking piano play are notably different from each other, even though the style of music does not change. See more »

Quotes

Buddy Sorrell: Boy, I can't wait'll I get home. Pickles is fixin' my favorite tonight - canned soup.
