Episode 22 begins with Jodie on a dinner date with Carol at a Japanese restaurant,driving the Chef(Fred Iwasaki)to distraction(and Rebecca Balding unable to suppress her laughter throughout the scene).She finally convinces the homosexual Jodie to join her for a weekend at Cape Cod,as friends(although her smile betrays her real motive).Burt finds a new friend on his first day at the nuthouse,Harold Bronfman(Milt Oberman,previously in episode 20),a neurotic who changes hats every ten seconds,who calms Burt's nervousness by telling him he'd be crazy if he weren't(Burt calls him The Mad Hatter).Danny tells Mary the reason why he's marrying a girl he doesn't even love,it's either that or its curtains.Billy runs away from home,embarrassed about a bad report card,until Benson borrows the sheriff's car to find him, arresting a drunk driver while doing it(with The Major exclaiming to everyone within earshot that the town has a black sheriff).In the courtroom,a boorish Mr.Franklin is admonished by the judge,who is tempted to dismiss the case,until Franklin claims to be holding back a surprise witness.
