Empty nesters Jim and Patti White's (Robert Mandan and Lynn Redgrave) 20th anniversary is approaching, and she wants to fill the empty nest by giving him a baby as a gift. But after sending two sons off to college, he's not interested in fatherhood again and would rather travel with her. Julie's (Lauren Tewes) former roommate Honey Bee Harknest (Randi Oakes) has a reputation for stealing men away from other women. So Julie deliberately tells Honey Bee that she's dating Gopher (Fred Grandy), in hopes that Honey Bee will leave Julie's current boyfriend, Ted Gaines (Richard Bergman), alone. Merrill's (Gavin MacLeod) former classmate, Martha Morse (Phyllis Diller), is sailing on the Princess and is amazed at how youthful Merrill still looks after all these years, leaving him afraid to remove his hat and show her that he is actually bald.
