Episode cast overview:
Terry Sholander (as Andréa Bendewald)


Charlie tells the psychiatrist how it felt when Jake's normal eagerness to have a sleep-over with a friend pushed Alan to the usual whining and an atypical outburst in the movie theater.

He never gets discouraged; he goes after what he wants; and he doesn't know the meaning of the word quit. When any man, no matter how humble can't go out there and soil the loins of some hot little dancer well, I don't want ...
