  • The crew is in Australia to work on one of the cruise line's ships based there. And a wealthy man named Farnsworth (Lloyd Bridges) has decided to invite his whole family for a reunion. But, in actuality, he wants to see who, among them, he should keep in his will. And among them is his niece, Marcia (Jessica Walters), who is not exactly fond of him, because she believes that, because of him, her father became penniless. And she brings along a friend, Jessica (Linda Evans), who has a knack of getting wealthy men to marry her, for the purpose of getting him to marry her, so that she could get what Marcia thinks she deserves. And he asks his niece, Jenny (Morgan Fairchild), and her husband, Bud (Grant Goodeve), to come but they're divorced so they have to pretend that they're still married. But after her fianc√© (Alan Fletcher) calls, he comes aboard and refuses to leave and, when he's told there are no more cabins, he stays with them. And Farnsworth's secretary and niece, Eloise (Beth Howland), gets him a replacement valet, Wayne (Jim Nabors), who's not exactly what he's use to. And Wayne and Eloise get close. Gopher (Fred Grandy) thinks he might be related to Farnswoth and could be entitled to his fortune. Stubbing (Gavin MacLeod) meets an old flame's daughter, Melanie (Margaret Laurence). And when he has to go, she decides to join him and he keeps his distance because he can't seem to separate her from her late mother. And Julie (Lauren Tewes) can't help but think about Tony Selkirk (Anthony Andrews), the guy she nearly married but he chose not to get married because he was dying.
