Anyone else notice Bruce loses his ethereal voice for a few seconds while speaking with Melba? Maybe he wasn't really a ghost!

A man dies leaving his wife a sorely grieving widow. He finds he can contact her from the life beyond, and she promises to remember him always. He learns from an angel though, that as long as he is remembered, he is stuck in the middle ground between Earth and the full afterlife. He then seeks to convince his wife to forget him… not an easy task.

This is a lighthearted and fun episode. Nothing scary about it. In fact, the set up in Act 1 for, and later in Act 3 the appearance of, a ghost, is quite amusing. Don't expect a 'happy' ending though. ;)

It was a cute story and a very fun episode. I disagree, I think the ending was very happy. The living wife was shocked in to resuming a happy life and the departed was finally allowed to rest. I could hear the moral: it is fine to morn but don't forget to move on and enjoy what's left of living. (Afterall, who know what you'll come back as the next time round.)

A lighthearted ghost story, comedic even. Dryden as God (what other regular would it be?) was pretty funny as well. Live for the future, not the past (as Bruce's mother found out too late).
