Episode cast overview:
Larry Mathews ...
Uncle George
Mrs. Glimscher
Bill Idelson ...


Everyone in the Petrie household is excited by the visit from Rob's boisterous, larger-than-life and young-at-heart Uncle George, but Rob's excitement turns to panic when he learns the reason for his visit: he wants to get a wife and wants Rob to find the woman for him. Rob is at a loss for an appropriate woman for Uncle George until Sally comes up with the idea of her boyfriend Herman Glimscher's mother, a mama's boy's mama. Rob and Laura host a small dinner party for the Glimschers, Sally and Uncle George where the elderly pair can meet; however, a problem arises when Uncle George only has eyes for one woman, who happens to be the wrong woman: Sally. Rob has to figure out a way to tell Uncle George that his expectations for a wife need to be set a little older than Sally. Written by Huggo
