Storyline

Young man Bruce's (Mark Shera) parents (Monty Hall and Janis Paige) are determined to have him date other women on the cruise and not settle on marrying "Ginger", who is not on board. So, Bruce and a fellow passenger (Laurie Prange) get together. A man (Leslie Nielsen) is having second thoughts, about age differences, in marrying a woman (Lynda Day George) who is 21 years younger. A new nurse (Elaine Joyce), on staff for the cruise, is a pretty ex-showgirl. Of course, Doc (Bernie Kopell) is hitting on her, and is a bit frustrated, when she does not return his advances.

Great To See Leslie Nielsen And Lynda Day George
24 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Selfless Love/The Nubile Nurse/Parents Know Best is the 22nd episode of the first season of The Love Boat. Guest stars includes Monty Hall, Janis Paige,Mark Shera Leslie Nielsen,Lynda Day George,Elaine Joyce,Laurie Prange, Marla Adams, Craig Littler, Dorothy Konrad, and Joe E. Ross.

The stories include a couple who takes their son on a cruise with the hope of ending a relationship;another couple tries to examine their romance during a cruise; and a former showgirl jeopardizes her career in nursing.

Well,there was nothing really exciting,compelling nor interesting in the stories featured.But at least,I got to see Leslie Nielsen in an early role and former TV actress Lynda Day George of the Mission Impossible TV series fame.
