Continuity: Sally answers her front door with her right hand on her forehead, but when the scene cuts to another camera, both hands are down below her waste. Soon after, she has her right palm against the side of her face, but when the camera cuts, her right fingers are on her chin.See more »

A poignant episode spotlighting Sally, 10 October 2006
Author: yourauntgussie from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In his wonderful _The Official Dick Van Dyke Show Book_ (if you're a fan of the show, buy this book!), Vince Waldron offers a brief plot summary -- "Sally discovers that she's got an unlikely admirer when the deli man starts dropping off flowers along with her pastrami sandwich."

I can't think of another episode of TDVDS that ends on such a bittersweet note. It could could bring a tear to the eye of the hardest-boiled cynic. In a major switch for her character, Rose Marie allows us a glimpse of the loneliness behind wisecracking Sally's brash facade.

Her kindness toward deli guy Bert Monker (played by Sid Melton, the 60's era go-to guy for a shortish, lippy little Brooklynite) is a model for a gentle let-down of a sweet but completely unsuitable suitor.

Fans of Rose Marie should not miss this uncharacteristically tender performance.
