Donna Takes it on the Chin
18 April 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Donna is practicing to play "Nora" for an amateur production of Ibsen's "A Doll's House" - and, she's obviously awful. The family Stone is dumbfounded. Alex (Carl Betz) suggests Donna cut her lines, which snobbish director Mary Shipp (as Lydia Langley) has already done. Mary (Shelley Fabares) says her mother "has a lot of nerve," and Jeff (Paul Peterson) thinks she shouldn't emote so much. Director Shipp wants Donna's part.

Later, Jeff comes home from school with a black eye. Donna scolds him for fighting, but he got the shiner from Shipp's son, Kim Charney (as Charles "Chunky" Langley), because the lad said Donna was, "as an actress… strictly from hunger." When Donna finds out, she decides to teach Jeff how to box. Oops. Jeff socks Donna in the chin, and gives "Chunky" a bloody nose. When Alex tries to administer first aid, he gets a black eye, too.
