Storyline

Vicki (Jill Whelan) hooks up with a young passenger (Glenn Scarpelli), who gives her some pills which he said are supplements. But, when the boy gets ill and Doc (Bernie Kopell) deduces it's from drug use and when the pills are found on Vicki, the boy's mother (Elinor Donahue) accuses Vicki of giving her son the drugs. Gopher's (Fred Grandy) uncle (Red Buttons), a salesman, sets up a little shop in his cabin, which undermines the ship's gift shop. And he takes a liking to the woman (June Allyson) in charge of the shop, whose job could be in jeopardy because she's not making any sales. And a guy (Patrick Wayne), who's traveling with his girlfriend (Ann Turkel), feels emasculated because she's better at the things he likes to do. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
