Question: Here's the clue: Frank and Carol on Friday night. With his and hers and a nephew not bright. Can you tell me the show? Thanks.
Answer: I see your poem:
So now it's rhyme with which you seek
To leave me flummoxed, vexed and weak?
And raise you a haiku:
Sitcom Step by Step
With stars Duffy
Dumb, yet successful
(Oh, yeah — Patrick and Suzanne's show ran on ABC from September 1991 to July 1998 and the dim nephew, Cody, was played by Sasha Mitchell. You can only fit so much info into poetry, y'know.)
Does this show have room for two beeyotches? They already have Kerry Weaver, and now there's Kristen Johnston as Eve, the new nurse manager that everybody hates. I started out loving her, since I tend to flock toward the "female dogs," and then when she was mean to my Luka, I hated her. I briefly forgave her when she and Luka seemed to patch things up. But when Eve told Sam she didn't want her to work the same shift as Luka, I was back to hating her. Loved when Sam compared her to Yoda. Johnston does a great job regardless. I was never a 3rd Rock fan, but she was nice to me the one time I met her.
Very freaky beginning, with the unidentified burn victim running into the hospital. But nothing was scarier than the abusive father lunging toward his ex-wife after realizing their son was probably dead. Poor Luka. It was bad enough he didn't go back to the boy sooner, but it was even worse that Eve was right. Nice work from Jessica Hecht
