What a strange episode with a strange leading lady! I love Teri Keane, having fallen in love with her after first hearing "The Eavesdropper" (great acting in that one!), and in this episode, she plays a sassy but pathetic career woman who's desperately lonely and whose maternal instincts are unfulfilled. So she mentally adopts a famous young actress as a "daughter," carrying on as a mother in her mind and a bit in real life, to the point of having "phone conversations" with her. Then the "daughter" has a breakdown. What will Keane's character do? And how does the handsome man she just men on an airplane react to all this weirdness? This episode features Evie Juster's "little girl voice," which is always strange, but something I love to hate-listen to LOL

I'm glad that Elspeth Eric did not write this episode, lol! Maybe people think it's unfair for me to take a "jab" and Elspeth here, but I can't help but imagine what she might have done with this story. As for the actual episode, I thought it was very well done and could have been so easily ruined, if not for the stellar performance from Terri Keane. Here she is in top form, and really captures the emotions of a mother, (even if her role as a mother is only in her head). I am glad they did the ending the way they did, having really help the girl, rather than having her depicted as nothing but a crazy fan obsessed with a celebrity. it was refreshing for there to actually be s connection between them, with some substance, even if it wasn't quite what she wanted it to be.

My favorite part is when she says, "This is where and how we find out what love really is..." I love her unconditional love for her "daughter" even if it is a fantasy. It is still very touching how much she loves this poor girl.

Interesting episode about a wannabe mom who imagines herself the mom of a young actress. Luckily, she encounters a handsome and wealthy man who, in turn, lives and cares for her. Good sound quality.
