On the eve of the Beatles first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964, Sam has more than a few butterflies in his stomach when he leaps into a blind concert pianist, Andrew Ross. His girlfriend, Michelle Stevens is a meek young woman who still lives at home with her domineering mother. Sam learns from Al that unless something is done, Michelle will become the next victim of the Central Park Strangler. Sam has a plan to save her, but his immediate concern is just how he is going to perform a scheduled concert at Carnegie Hall.
Did You Know?
Even though he doesn't remember how to play piano, Al tells Sam he played Carnegie Hall at age 19. See more
A bus features an ad on its exterior for "Studebaker Model Preview", but the car featured on the ad is a Studebaker Lark station wagon from 1962 or 1963, making the ad up to two years out of date. More, "model previews" of new cars in the 1960s would typically take place in the late spring or summer months, before being available for sale in the fall. Typically, they did not take place in February, when this episode is set (The notable exception to this rule was the Ford Mustang, released as a 1964-1/2 model in March 1964). See more
