Episode cast overview:
Robert Casper ...
Lynn Wood ...
Arthur Abelson ...
Loretta Kuhne


Mary is reluctant to tell anyone that she is going into the hospital to remove a tonsil, which has regrown after being removed when she was a child, if only because it is, as she describes it, such a teensy-weensy issue that usually only affect little children. Her insurance only covers a semi-private room, but she welcomes having a roommate for the company and support. She may change her mind when she meets her roommate, Loretta Kuhne, who describes herself as the antithesis of Miss Congeniality. Regardless, Mary can't help but try to get involved with Loretta's seemingly troubled life, which not only includes the two reasons for her hospitalization - a broken leg and a inflamed ulcer - but also a strained marriage. Will Loretta eventually let her in? Written by Huggo
