"Third Wheel / Grandmother's Day / Second String Mom" is the final episode of the second season of The Love Boat. The guest appearing on it are Ken Berry, Robert Cummings, Nanette Fabray, Beth Howland, Ethel Merman, Barry Nelson, Michele Tobin and Shelly Juttner.

In this particular cruise of the Pacific Princess,Gopher's parents come for a visit.Too bad that the father feels out of place.Meanwhile,a couple with already grown children are going to have a new family member.Finally,two sisters feel uncomfortable with their new stepmother.

This was a good final episode.First,we have a story centered on Gopher.Also,the three stories presented revolved around family and family issues including that of Gopher.
