Isaac And Gopher Tries To Train A Parrot
2 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That's My Dad/The Captain's Bird/Captive Audience is the eleventh episode of the fourth season of The Love Boat.The guest stars that are appearing in this episode are the following: Meeno Peluce, Dirk Benedict,Allan Jones,Jack Jones,Dorothy Lamour,Laraine Stephens and Beth Scheffel.

When the Captain decides to get a parrot for Vicki this Christmas,it was revealed that it hasn't been revealed to talk. Gopher and Isaac were asked to train it and the results become extremely disastrous that provided the viewer with a lot of laughs.Meanwhile a stowaway convinces the crew that a playboy who happens to be a passenger of the boat is his father.Finally,a father and son singing act haven't had any opportunity to speak for the last ten years since the latter has decided to go solo.Their respective wives try to reconcile them but to no avail.

This was definitely a very funny comedic episode especially with the introduction of the parrot.
