"The Musical/My Ex-Mom/The Show Must Go On/The Pest/My Aunt, the Worrier: Part 1" is the first part of the 18th episode of the fifth season of The Love Boat.The guests that appears on it are Ethel Merman, Carol Channing,Della Reese,Ann Miller,Van Johnson,Cab Calloway and Tracey E. Bregman.

Isaac and Gopher suggests to Captain Stubing that they are putting up a stage musical as entertainment for the passengers of the Pacific Princess.Gopher's mother Ros, Julie's Aunt Sylvia, Isaac's mother Millie, and Doc's former mother-in-law Connie Carruthers are all going to take part in it.But one thing is for certain: each one wants a prominent role or the starring role in it.Also abroad in this cruise is former actor and film star Victor,whose payment check bounced and another passenger Lionel,who is determined to marry Isaac's mother by constantly asking her.Meanwhile,Doc and Gopher end up falling in love with the same woman and both gets to argue over the contents of the musical.

It was interesting that the show is going to a have two-part musical especially with well-known actors and actresses from the past musical film hits are going to participate on it.
