A Surprising Guest Appearance by one of America's Acting Treasures!
1 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's face it, getting Julie Harris to appear in an episode of Family Ties must have been a hoot. She plays an older mature woman returning to college and is one of Mallory's classmates. Of course, the woman befriends Mallory and tries to bond with her despite Mallory's resistance and reservations about being linked to an older woman. When Margaret Hollings' gets a little too close to Mallory, she backs off seeking the relationship of her peers. Mallory's still at that stage where you are still seeking acceptance of your peers. Anyway Freshman Mallory feels bad about the situation and rectifies it in her own way. We love Julie Harris and we can't imagine another actress playing this small role that remains to be one of it's better episodes. Anyway, it could have been written better but the cast was always outstanding on this show.
