Mary has noticed that Lou has been in an unusually happy and accommodating mood. Murray lets it slip that it's because of a woman. Lou is so happy, he is modernizing his wardrobe to impress this woman, who he wants Mary to meet. Taking Mary up on her offer to drop by anytime, Lou brings her by to Mary's apartment unannounced one evening. She is Charlene Maguire, a lounge singer/pianist, who has "been around". Regardless, Mary loves her. But Mary's description of Charlene to Murray and Ted makes Lou get cold feet about dating someone like Charlene, who has lived more than most women he has ever dated. Charlene feels hurt by Lou's brush-off, while Mary feels guilty for causing it. Is there anything Mary can say to Lou to reconsider giving Charlene the brush-off for good, and if so is there anything Lou can say to Charlene that would make her forgive him? Written by Huggo
