Country boy in the big city
20 June 2012 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

A hilarious episode featuring George and playing on his innocence as a country hick and lack of socialization.

Dick is to be honored at a publisher's party in New York City. Upon discovering that Joanna cannot come due to an expected visit by some annoying friends, Dick decides to take George (against his better judgment). Dick's fears that George won't fit in with the ritzy guests at the party cause him to make other plans for George but when George decides to forego Dick's plans to keep Dick from going to "the boring party" alone, Dick reluctantly brings George with him. Meanwhile, Joanna waits for her guests, missing EVERYTHING about New York (including sleazy people on the streets).

The title of this episode is based on "Sunday in the Park With George" a musical that ran in Booth Theater in New York in 1984.
