It's Richard Benjamin and George Segal!
29 May 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Boy was I surprised when early in this episode Richard Benjamin and George Segal stepped into the show. As both have only rarely been seen since about 1980, it was very nice to see them again--very familiar faces from my childhood.

Well, it turned out these two men had been accidentally sent to prison many years before--for kidnapping Olive when she was a girl. All they actually did was find a lost kid and bring her home but Olives neglectful parents reported them as kidnappers to hide their own bad parenting...as they never even noticed that their child had run off some time ago! Nice, huh? This week's murder concerns some murdered window dressers. However, as Ned is sick of the complications that arise when he revives the dead, he quits Emerson's business. But Chuck is game and she and Emerson investigate.

As for Ned, apparently Olive has told her two kidnapper friends that she and Ned are in love. And, in an odd twist, Ned agrees to pretend to be her fiancé to help her save face. However, Olive takes advantage of this and begins telling others (such as Chuck's aunts) they are engaged. But when the truth is revealed, Ned's new friend Randy(David Arquette) is thrilled, as he's obviously in love with Olive...but too shy to tell her.

So how does all this end? See the episode yourself to see. Well written and funny, this one is a bit better than average.
