Computer Dating with Paul Lynde
Because business is slow in the computer dating service where he works, Jerry (Jerry Fogel) may lose his job, so the mother-in-law decide to pose as customers. Kaye (Kaye Ballard) poses as a red-haired Irish lass and Eve (Eve Arden) becomes a dark-haired Italian signorina. They initially balk, but Herb (Herbert Rudley) and Roger (Richard Deacon) show up as a French and British gentlemen. Special guest star Paul Lynde (as Wally "Love Bug" Logan) hopes to match them up before his business bites the dust. This episode continues the second-season subplot following the announcement, last episode, "I'm pregnant," by Suzy (Deborah Walley). Desilu originated the storyline in "I Love Lucy" and "The Mothers-In-Law" have a similar long-running conflict about the baby's name/gender. This time, the cast is allowed to say the word "pregnant" on television. Madelyn Davis and Bob Carroll Jr. are fine comedy writers.
