In another flashback to the early days of the Petries' marriage, Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) is nervous over the prospect of meeting Rob's (Dick Van Dyke) parents for the first time. To calm herself, she takes some nerve medicine prescribed to her friend Millie (Ann Morgan Guilbert). Unfortunately, the pills turn out to be "uppers," resulting in an extremely hyperactive Laura during a riotous dinner with Rob's mom and dad. Watch for the moment in which the flashback is "fast-forwarded," anticipating home video technology by nearly two decades!
