With their wedding approaching, Joe tells Helen she's not doing her part like getting their marriage license. She goes to get it and learns that she and Antonio whom she married so that he wouldn't ...
Stock footage of the Sandpiper Cessna featured three different planes. The numbers were N121PP or "November 121 Papa Papa'"(the one always given by Joe or Brian over the radio), N121PB and N160PB. The latter two are never spoken of. See more »
Joe uses call letters to identify the aircraft incorrectly. He says "November-One-Two-One-Papa-Papa" to announce N121PP. However, pilots NEVER include the first letter. The call should be "One-Two-One-One-Two-One-Papa-Papa" and that is further abbreviated to just "Papa-Papa" one communication is established. See more »

I am so glad that USA Network continues to rerun the episodes of this great show. With one exception I found this to be among those shows with a once in a lifetime cast. The only exception was Farah Forke, an absolutely terrible actress, who has dragged down every series that she has been a part of. Her character Alex was contentious, had a constant chip on her shoulder, and constantly felt that she had to show everyone how tough she was. BUT, when the shows' producers saw the light and bounced her they hit a home run with the casting of Amy Yasbeck in the role of Helen's sister. IMHO this show was as well written as any sitcom ever was. I hated to see the character of Lowell leave but I can't blame Thomas Hayden Church for trying to make it as the star of his own series (sadly, the series was a dud). And, while I would never want to associate professionally or socially with Roy, he was played perfectly by David Schramm. The final two part episode did a superb job of wrapping things up. It was a real bittersweet moment for me as I imagined what life would be like for Brian who so abruptly gave up his dream life in the islands to keep Sandpiper going while Joe was in Europe with Helen. Who knows if he really got to fulfill that dream one year later. So many things can change in that time frame. This was a show that people like me could get involved in and it all seemed so real. I hoe that USA continues the reruns for many, many years.
