A pre-Family Feud Richard Dawson appears as "Racy Tracy" Rattigan, the English music hall comic engaged to replace Alan Brady during his summer vacation. No sooner has "Racy Tracy" arrived at the offices of Alan's writers Rob (Dick Van Dyke), Buddy (Morey Amsterdam), and Sally (Rose Marie) than he begins living up to his nickname, merrily flirting with every female in sight -- including Rob's wife Laura (Mary Tyler Moore). Not wishing to lose his job, Rob grins and bears it until Rattigan makes outrageous advances at Laura during a party at the Petrie home. The memorable closing line of this episode was provided during filming at the very last moment by co-star Morey Amsterdam, when no one else could come up with an appropriate capper.
