Even the commercial at the end is apropos.

Randy Mc

A writer assists an aging actess in writing her autobiography. In the process, the actress divulges a deep secret that ends up on tape.

@Randy, how is the American Lung Association commercial apropos to this story? You must have conjured a far-fetched connection. This was a story about an aging celebrity coming to grips with her life decisions as she writes her memoirs. Those decisions also impact her daughter.


I find it strange that an avocado tree is also mentioned in the episode "Time and Time Again".

Larry Haines is really good at playing the nervous sounding characters. This episode is not the first in which he as portrayed his character as awkward, breathy, and nervous.


Another Elspeth Eric story about a daughter, her mother, and a man attracted to the daughter. Elspeth has written at least three or four stories that explores this same theme. What is her fascination with this same story/plot? Because it is so similar to the other two similar stories, it was like hearing the same story over again, with variations. For that reason, this episode makes me feel like heaving a big, tired sigh.
