Long before network television came up with the concept of the "Very Special Episode", the sitcom Alice served up this dramatic tale with heavily comic undertones. Unlucky in love, waitress Vera (Beth Howland) decides to end it all by swallowing a bottleful of sleeping pills. With emergency medical assistance virtually out of the question thanks to a driving rainstorm, it is up to Alice (Linda Lavin) and Flo (Polly Holliday) to spend a hectic night keeping Vera awake...and alive!
