Storyline

As Keith Kelly (Don Most) boards a Valentine's Day cruise, he receives a nasty singing telegram, from Suzie Scott (Claudia Lonow), telling him that his girlfriend has dumped him. So he misdirects his resentment toward the girlfriend at Suzie, and it only intensifies when she forgets to leave the ship before it sails. Magazine editor Liz Merritt (Fannie Flagg) calls a temporary agency to recruit a secretary. The agency head Sam Corey (Don Adams) visits the ship to tell her that they couldn't find anyone, then decides to pose as the secretary himself, despite the fact that he doesn't type and doesn't take dictation. Football star Duke Taylor (John Amos), who has played in four Super Bowls and has written a juicy tell-all autobiography, begins a shipboard fling with schoolteacher Kate Langley (Jayne Kennedy). Written by Maisie Fleckum

Valentine's Episode Unites Other Stars
11 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

A football player (John Amos) romances a schoolteacher Jayne Kennedy).

A man (Don Adams) running a secretarial company intends to tell a woman (Fannie Flagg) he can't get her a male secretary for her cruise, and she mistakes him for the assigned secretary.

A man (Donny Most) is dumped by his unseen girlfriend with a bunny-eared singing telegram (Claudia Lonow).

Most's story has been done in several variations on the show before, perhaps so has the mistaken identity with Flagg and Adams as well.

Same for Amos and Kennedy.

Amazingly, once more, Vicki appears to a minimum in this episode, so that's a plus.

The episode is fun in it's own way for seeing Amos, Kennedy, Most, Adams and Flagg together in a show.

Surprisingly, the three women actually meet up and so do the guys, then briefly pairing up to talk over matters with each other; Lonow with Amos, Most with Flagg, Kennedy with Adams.

For some reason, it was most fun for me seeing Amos, Adams and Most from Good Times, Get Smart and Happy Days. Wonderful shows.
