Storyline

Doc's (Bernie Kopell) medical school chum, Dr. Elliot Norton (James Noble), gives Vicki (Jill Whelan) some information for an article on Doc, but is besieged with requests for interviews, leaving Doc feeling very insecure about his own accomplishments, which pale in comparison to those of Dr. Norton. Tom Niver (Raymond St. Jacques) and Faye Phillips (Theresa Merritt) are seniors living together without being married. They introduce his son Jeffrey (Brian Stokes Mitchell) to her daughter Velma (Telma Hopkins), both of whom object to their parents' domestic arrangement. Computer genius Ross (Alan Young) meets longtime friend Kathy Brighton (Holland Taylor) abroad the ship, but is afraid of losing her to masculine passenger Bob Williams (Adam West). So Ross takes Kathy on a tour of the ship and finds something startling in the cargo hold. Written by Maisie Fleckum
