The Mayor's college daughter makes a visit.
6 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the Mayor's daughter, Meg (Alyssa Milano), comes for a visit from college, it seemed that the little girl has grown up with ideas of her own. During a ceremony for the handsome-cabs, Meg decides to protest the harsh treatment of the animals and ride naked through the streets. There seems to be a conflict between daughter and father.

In another story, Paul is writing to the lonely hearts club. He has made contact with a woman and they start corresponding. But for the people in the office it is difficult to watch Paul's desperate life. So they get his ex-girlfriend, Claudia, and pretend she is the one writing the letters. Hopefully the office will be normal if Paul and Claudia can get back together.

It was nice to see Faith Prince (Claudia) return to the show. It seemed that Paul and Claudia made the show better and kept the audience entertained. The beautiful Alyssa Milano guest-stars in this episode and her presents on the screen is always a positive thing. The show was well written and well performed. The only regrettable thing is that it did not have time to get deeper into the father/daughter problems-- but it still provided an entertaining episode.
