A Poignant Episode
4 April 2008 | by (Forest Hills, NY) – See all my reviews

This is the most touching and poignant episode of the entire series. It guest stars Barry Gordon, a former child star who I recently saw on an episode of " Leave it to Beaver " as a little friend of Beaver's whom they discover is from a troubled family, also a very poignant episode. Here he plays the "Secret Admirer" of Chrissy's, who has been sending her flowers and gifts. The three roommates are titillated by this, and go through great measures to discover who the admirer is. Of course it is assumed that he will be a handsome dashing prince. When he finally shows up at their door, answered by Jack and Janet, they discover a shy, Woody Allen-nebbish kind of guy. They think Chrissy will be devastated and take pains to hide him from her. But to their surprise, they hit it off well, and Chrissy is not only kind to him, but informs Jack & Janet that she has enjoyed talking to him very much and is glad they will be friends. Turns out, he is the guy at the newspaper stand in the lobby of the building where Chrissy works, and has always admired how sweet and kind she is when he sees her coming to work. The episode ends with Jack telling Chrissy how beautiful she is, on the inside. I agreed, and looked at Chrissy differently after seeing this episode.
