Storyline

Buddy Sorrell's brother, "Blackie" Sorrell (from whom Buddy has been estranged for a long time), shows up at the Alan Brady Show's offices one day. Later meeting Buddy's brother alone while Buddy is out, Rob invites him to his house for dinner, not knowing of his past as a pool hustler. After dinner, knowing Rob has a pool table in the basement, Blackie not-so-innocently suggests that the two of them try playing a game or two. Written by aldanoli

Trivia

The trick shot by Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) was actually made in one take. They had planned for a pool expert to make the shot after cutting away from showing Laura hitting the cue ball. But to everyone's surprise, she actually made the shot. Both Mary and Dick stayed in character and finished the take, thus the genuine look of surprise on their faces. See more »

Goofs

Blackie is a right handed shot. During the game when he is hustling Rob, one of his shots is made left handed. See more »

Quotes

Blackie Sorrell: Are you, uh, really as good as she says you are?
Robert 'Rob' Petrie: I'll let my pool cue speak for me. This way, pigeon.
