19 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Critical Success / Love Lamp Is Lit, The / Take My Boy Friend, Please / Rent a Family / Man in Her Life – Part 2" is the second part of the ninth episode of the third season of The Love Boat.The guest stars appearing on this two-part episode are Bill Daily, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Jackie Earle Haley, John Hillerman, Gunilla Hutton, Patsy Kelly, Roz Kelly, Larry Linville, Dina Merrill, Ginger Rogers, Natalie Schäfer, Stephen Shortridge and William Windom.Also,included are the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

In the second part of the this episode,Stacy regrets for pushing Mark away.As for Wendy and Bill tried to convince her mother from leaving after she misinterprets the wedding rings that were being bought.Meanwhile,Paul tried to keep his boss from learning about his girlfriend and Lisa apparently learned more about his so-called "family".As for the Haymans,they thought through things like the diamond heist and their break-up after realizing things when they meet the kids belonging to the orphanage.Finally,Stella offers a harsh opinion about the play written by Elliot.

Well,the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders provided a wonderful presence in this two part episode.They realized spiced up watching it.Also,it was nice to see nice stories in this two-part episode.
