This one also involves looking at things from different perspectives. Linc saves a woman, (Barbara Mattes, (who is very good- this is one of only three credits she has on the IMDb, so she must have found something she was even better at), from drowning after she jumps off a bridge the company he works for is building. She's the sister of their employer, (James Coburn). She's rebelling against her controlling brother. Linc falls for her. Her brother is wary of Linc, being unsure if he legitimately cares for her as he does.

Meanwhile, Linda Watkins returns as Linc's mother, (making her the only character other than Julie Newmar's Vicki and the regulars to appear in more than one episode, not counting two-parters), to try to get Linc to talk to his own father on the phone. She feels Linc's resentment of Coburn is related to his feelings toward his own father.

Eventually Linc realizes that his girlfriend is emotionally unstable and that Coburn, despite his gruffness, really cares about her. He severs that relation but then re-connects with his own father over the phone, warming his mother's heart and closing a loose dramatic end as this series was nearing its end. .
