One of the better episodes
26 December 2015 | by BigWhiskersSee all my reviews

One of the better episodes from Season 4 . Sally Chadwick ,a friend who Barbara hasn't seen in a year shows up with a baby. Turns out she's an unwed teen who had a fling with a high school boy the previous summer. Eventually Ann and Julie discover that the father is Cliff Randall the boy whom Julie is currently dating. The situation is played out very believably with Cliff coming clean with Barbara who gets upset and blows up. Then Sally comes back from a job interview and she and Cliff get into a discussion over what's happened. Initially they had agreed to put the child up for adoption but unknown to Cliff, she couldn't do it. In the end they both decided that they need to give the child to people who can take care of him and support him since neither of them are even high school grads and have no jobs or much money.

Actor Scott Colomby(Cliff Randall) who up to this point was mere filler as a small part recurring character who was dating Barbara actually gets to show some decent acting chops in this episode ,the final scene with him getting choked up over having to put his child up for adoption is sad yet powerful. It's too bad his character did not return for any more episodes, he simply disappeared and was never heard from again. The only thing I did not like about this episode was the poor choice of the writers to have Schneider do his stupid comedy schlock in a very inappropriate situation. I mean I couldn't stand his character , it got really tired after 4 seasons.
