Ann Marie is a struggling actress living in New York City. In between trying to find jobs acting and modeling she has time for her boyfriend, Don Hollinger, and her dad, Lew Marie.
Arlene Golonka, who played Jerry Bauman's (Bernie Kopell) wife, Margie, in Season 1, episode 21, "Rain, Snow and Rice" in the first season was replaced by Carol Ann Daniels in Season 2, episode 8, "There's Nothing to be Afreud of But Freud Himself", where her name was changed to Ruth. Golonka reappeared in Season 2, episode 30, "Old Man's Darling" as Bonita LaSalle, the girlfriend of Ann's publicist, Eddy Edwards.
Ann Marie moves to New York City from Brewster, NY, which is on the Metro North Railroad's Harlem Line to Grand Central Terminal. The footage behind the credits was shot on New Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor Line (photographed from the rear of a train leaving New York and then shown backwards so the train appears to be going to New York, although on the wrong track).
The opening for season 1 only is not the famous train tracks, but a breathless and beautiful Ann Marie running across a NY street to a building, dressed in a pale blue coat, white gloves and shoes, white pocketbook under her arm. The train tracks don't come until seasons 2, 3, & 4, and season 5 adds lyrics to the up-tempo opening music ("Diamonds, daisies, snowflakes...").
