Gidget the Advice Columnist
8 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gidget (Sally Field) is critical of the school newspaper's unhelpful "Helpful Hannah" column. She is shocked to find the writer is a guy-Norman Crowley (Jim Connell) and asks, "How can you be Helpful Hannah?" "They didn't require a physical," Norman comically replies. He is filling in until the paper can find someone to take over the column. He quits and the editor Peggy Bell (Candice Howard) talks Gidget into being Helpful Hannah. Gidget gets involved in a letter and feels compelled to give in-person advise to the male writer "Wretched" who feels his girlfriend isn't committed to him. At the library she mistakes "Wretched" for Ted (Rick Cooper) and the two are seen by Ted's girlfriend Ellen (Barbara Hershey). Gidget replies in the paper for "Wretched" to come by after-surf hangout The Shack Saturday afternoon to "find the help you're after". Once again she mistakes "Wretched" for another guy by sitting down with Toby (Robert Beach) whose girlfriend Kathy (Jewel Jaffe) works at The Shack and angrily dumps ice cream on him. Gidget is surprised to find who "Wretched" is (although it became predictable early on).

Oddly, in this episode Gidget twice gets an idea and Jeannie's blink sound effect from "I Dream of Jeannie" is used. The two shows shared a production company, Screen Gems.
