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

Memorable Performance By Suzanne Kent
18 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Suzanne Kent's character, "Angela Matusa" wound up so memorable that the writers followed up with her with an episode the following season. In Season Two, "Angela" had dropped 100 pounds and......well, it, too, was an interesting episode, as this one was.

The program begins with references to Angela and her being one of the main voices of Bobby's answering service. You see, back in the mid '70s there were no answering phones apparently. (I can't remember, myself). Bobby, to find out if he had any calls with messages, would contact this service and a woman would read him messages. Apparently Angela not only had a good voice but was extremely nice and personal and everyone enjoyed talking to her.

To make a long story short, Alex winds up getting a date with her. Wow, Angela does not turn out to be whom Alex and the boys thought. But it isn't that she's a heavy woman, it's that her personality and attitude are the world's worst. Talk about a person with a complex!

She makes the night really tough on poor this show tended to do, it leaves on a nice note with a touching scene. Alex does and says all the right things, which is why he is the "leader" of this small group of cabbies that we laugh with every week on this great TV show.
