Storyline

Vicki (Jill Whelan) hooks up with a young passenger (Glenn Scarpelli), who gives her some pills which he said are supplements. But, when the boy gets ill and Doc (Bernie Kopell) deduces it's from drug use and when the pills are found on Vicki, the boy's mother (Elinor Donahue) accuses Vicki of giving her son the drugs. Gopher's (Fred Grandy) uncle (Red Buttons), a salesman, sets up a little shop in his cabin, which undermines the ship's gift shop. And he takes a liking to the woman (June Allyson) in charge of the shop, whose job could be in jeopardy because she's not making any sales. And a guy (Patrick Wayne), who's traveling with his girlfriend (Ann Turkel), feels emasculated because she's better at the things he likes to do. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Vicki Hooks Up
22 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Vicki's Dilemma/Discount Romance/Looser & Still Champ" is the 19th episode in this sixth year of The Love Boat. June Allyson, Red Buttons, Elinor Donahue, Glenn Scarpelli, Ann Turkel and Patrick Wayne appeared as guest stars in this episode.

Vicki and another young passenger hooks up and the latter gives the former some pills which she said are supplements.Unfortunately,the young male passenger gets ill and Doc thinks that it is from the drug use.This led to a confrontation as the mother complained about her son's situation. Gopher's uncle,a salesman,sets up a little shop in his cabin which undermines his ship's gift shop which makes his job somewhat in danger.He gets interested with a woman in the shop.Finally,a guy traveling with his girlfriend feels emasculated because there are better things that she can do.

It was a typical episode of Love Boat.No question about it.It was nice to see Red Buttons in it.
