Emmy winner Tony Randall portrays widower Walter Franklin, a somewhat less-than-magisterial Philadelphia judge put upon by an assortment of family and courtroom recidivists. In this pilot-opener, Walter copes with a bad case of nerves as he preens for his first date with a widow, Linda Jenkins, in almost two years. Walter goes out with the widow, whose talk about her dear departed, turns it into a memorial dinner for the late Mr. Jenkins' so much so that the waiter offers to bring an extra plate.
