Storyline

Sam leaps into Dr. Ruth Westheimer the well-known sex therapist just as she is in the middle of her radio call-in show. Al tells him he's there to help two of Dr. Ruth's staff, Doug and Debbie, to stick together. Sam thinks he's there to help a young woman, Annie Wilkins, who called into the show to say she was being pressured by her boss, Jonathan, to have sex. Sam convinces her to quit her job and Jonathan says Annie is just fantasizing. In the blue room meanwhile, the real Dr. Ruth has advice for Al who, she says, seems to go out of his way to sabotage all of his relationships. Written by garykmcd

When Sam mentions sexual harassment, a black woman in the background is showing rapt attention to the conversation. Her friend calls her, "Anita." She is meant to represent Anita Hill. See more »

Goofs

The reflections of Sam while he's walking on top of the cars and fighting Jonathan are clearly a stunt person in a curly wig, not the real Dr. Ruth. See more »
