Storyline

Mel's cousin Maxwell Cooley, a wholesale jeweler, stops by the studio to drop a purchase off for Mel. Mel thinks Rob, Buddy and/or Sally might also be interested in buying something from Maxwell. An ostentatious necklace, a copy of one belonging to Empress Carlotta, catches Rob's eye solely for its historical interest. The original, in a Madrid museum, is valued at $250,000. Maxwell convinces him to buy it for Laura. Rob isn't sure if she'll like it, or whether he likes it himself for that matter, but is still excited to give it to her. When he sees it on Laura, he totally falls in love with it. Laura hates the necklace but can't tell Rob her true feelings for fear of hurting his. She vows to tell him, but the longer she waits, and the more people that Rob wants her to show it to, the harder it is for her to tell him. But someone may come to Laura's rescue. Written by Huggo
