Storyline

Rhoda sets Mary up on a blind date, the two who are to double date with Rhoda and her date, Lowell. Mary's blind date is Warren Sturges, Lowell's friend. Because of that fact, Rhoda knows that both she and Mary will have a terrible time because Lowell mentions that Warren is just like him. Rhoda fails to tell Mary that Lowell, and by association, Warren is boorish, until just before their arrival for the date. By the end of the evening, Mary tells Warren in no uncertain terms that there is no future for them. However, Warren has the exact opposite reaction: he has fallen in love with her. Warren pulls one crazy stunt after another to win Mary's heart, but Mary is too afraid to confront him in fear of making a scene. So when Warren's stunts suddenly stop, Mary lies and waits for what she believes will be the big doozy stunt of all stunts. Written by Huggo

Can You Say "Restraining Order"?
10 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know that I am writing this in 2017, but I'd forgotten how uncomfortable this episode made me, even when it first aired. Stuart Margolin (who we probably remember from "The Rockford Files) meets Mary on a blind date. He immediately "falls" for her and begins to harass her. No matter what she says, he won't go away. He puts up a billboard with their names on it. He handcuffs her so she has to go to lunch. On and on. This is really sick behavior. She begins to not answer her phone or go out of her apartment except for work. Even the finale, which I guess is supposed to be embarrassing to Mary, is not very satisfying. And it's all because she doesn't want to hurt his feelings.
