Saying 'No' To Nardo Couldn't Have Been Easy
15 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Elaine, trying to juggle an art gallery opening show, her cab job and two kids at home, snaps. Things go badly at the art show and she loses it. Alex takes her home and recommends she see a psychiatrist. She claims there is absolutely nothing wrong with her, but then suddenly she tries to make out with Alex! Now, Alex knows she needs help! Alex does the right thing here, which would be hard for any man to do considering who was coming on to him.

Soon, Nardo and "Dr. Bernard Collins" have their first psych session.

The psychiatrist looked and sounded very familiar to me, but I could't place him. I knew he is a great actor....but who was it? Well, the ending credits answered that: It was Tom Ewell. I couldn't believe it. This was the guy who played opposite 1950s sex bombshells Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield! Now, he was nice little bald-headed man, almost 70 years old. Well, at least he was still acting and doing a good job of it. He is very good in this episode.

What happens to Elaine I'll leave it up to you to find out. Suffice to say this was another entertaining episode with good dialog.
