Episode Quotes

Mel Cooley: I hope you didn't say anything offensive.
Buddy Sorrell: Just your name.
Sally Rogers: Fellas, if you're dull, uninteresting, unattractive, chances are we've already met; but, if you're of voting age - better make that twice voting age...
Stevie Parsons: Yes.
Sally Rogers: ...and if you still haven't found the ideal girl, why don't you give up and try me? Just sit down and write yourself a marriage proposal and send it to S.O.S. - that's me, Sweet Old Sal - care of this program. All proposals will be judged impartially by one - me.
Rob Petrie: [as Sally begins sorting through her sack of mail] Whoa! You're not gonna read 'em NOW?
Sally Rogers: Whoa, you're not gonna try and stop me, are you? My future may be in this bag.
Buddy Sorrell: That's what I said the first time I saw my wife.


  • Goof (miscellaneous): You can't speak the names of private citizens on television -- especially in a derogatory way -- without risking a lawsuit. Television producers would never permit Sally to say Herman Glimscher's name on the air.


  • Last appearance of Sally's boyfriend Herman Glimscher in the series.
