Storyline

Gopher (Fred Grandy) buys a Daisy exercise machine to improve his physique but doesn't want the other crew members to know about it, while an attractive girl (Chanelle Lea) keeps sneaking into his cabin while he's out. Doc (Bernie Kopell), Isaac (Ted Lange) and Julie (Lauren Tewes) are confused by the sounds of his exercising and by the girl's comings and goings. They eventually jump to the wrong conclusion that he's having a very physical affair with the girl. Long-married Lou and Harriet Stevens (James Coco and Doris Roberts) bicker a great deal. Their 25-year-old son Jonathan (Adam Arkin) is a divorce lawyer who announces plans to move out of the family homestead and into a bachelor pad, leaving Harriet traumatized. She reacts so emotionally that it leads her and Lou to contemplate divorce, and both of them want Jonathan to represent them. Society matron Allison Newman's (Joan Rivers) romance with junk dealer Max Glutovsky (Alex Rocco) is threatened due to the lingering insecurity ... Written by Maisie Fleckum
