Mike Flaherty: [Mike trying to quell the anger of insulting the local Native-Americans] Once again Chief, the Mayor and I would like to apologise for yesterdays unfortunate misunderstanding. We would like you to come to City Hall and we thought we'd all take the bowl down to the Museum of Natural History together.
Chief Phil: I don't know, Mr Flaherty. You can't pacify us with some hollow ceremony. We feel...

A script that was filled with laughs.
8 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was actually a very funny and clever show. We all know by now that Mayor Winston is not the most political correct person in the Big Apple, and when Native-Americans come to his office it starts a series of very comical lines that may not be the most inspired by the PC crowd.

The Mayor has accept a gift for the city from a tribe of local Indians. But during the presentation, the Mayor and Mike make some comments that make the Indians feel slighted. When Mike goes to smooth things over, he accidentally ingest some peyote which is usually not a problem. This time it could be trouble because Mike has implemented a drug test for all the Mayor's staff.

In another story Paul's mother, Abby (Raquel Welch), learns that her little boy is to marry Claudia. Abby had promised not to re-marry until her son was married. Now Abby is on the market.

This was an amusing story that, at times, was absolutely hilarious. Some of the incorrect comments by the Mayor were laughing moments as he just could not put his thoughts around the correct thing to say. An enjoyable show that featured the always lovely Raquel Welch in her second appearance in the series. Good watch.
