Episode cast overview:
Suzanne Kent ...


Alex goes on a blind date with Angela, whose name he only knows from the phone. When Alex and Angela meet, Angela, who seems to be experienced on blind dates, acts as if she had been disappointed a lot by men. This is mainly due to the fact that she is not looking like most men expect, but Alex seems to have no real problem with it. Latka finds $2000 in the back seat of one of the cabs and the crew does not know if they should return it or not. Suddenly, the boys show up during Alex's date with Angela. Written by sssss

Alex's blind date with the phone lady.
21 July 2008 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

I have very few "favorite" TV series from my 55 years of watching, but the old "Taxi" series is one of my very favorites. I am currently re-watching all the old episodes on DVD. Any "SPOILER" will be clearly marked.

Jeff Conaway is aspiring actor Bobby, and has a phone message center as part of his method to find jobs. The lady he usually talks to is "Angela" who is very, very nice on the phone but none of them have ever met her. Alex even talked to her for an hour one time, and it was one of the most pleasant experiences he had.

Judd Hirsch is Alex Reiger and one day while Bobby is checking his message hands the phone to Alex, to speak with Angela. Egged on by his friends, Alex makes a dinner date with Angela.

When he arrives at her door, the "sweet" Angela is a bitter, sullen person, almost impossible to have a normal conversation with. Alex is caught off guard and tries everything to make this date turn out well. They go to dinner but it too is a bad experience.

Suzanne Kent is Angela Matusa, a New York girl, with a low self-concept and that is keeping her from allowing a relationship, or even a conversation, to be productive.

SPOILERS: Angela has a pretty face, but she is rather large and very few men would give her a second look. Most women would not want to be around her. So she is depressed and her defense mechanism is to lash out at everyone. By the end of the episode Alex convinces her that he really is interested in her as a person, that he is willing to be "friends". They hug, and we find out that Angela needs hugs badly.
