Ruth Gordon guest stars
28 January 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Kirk's outspoken grandmother arrives for a surprise visit when Leslie finally agrees to go on a date with Kirk.

This is an OK episode, Gordon supplies a few laughs with some of her comments. She ruins the date when Leslie admits she is not in love with Kirk. Martin Ferrero (later on Miami Vice) has a funny bit as a waiter. Funniest moment is when George finds out the pork chops Joanna made is a pig he had known personally.
