This opening episode of Moonlighting's third season upholds the series' unique juxtaposition of fact and fancy by carrying a "dedication" to a person who doesn't really exist! Wisecracking private eye David Addison (Bruce Willis) is uncharacteristically at a loss for words when his recently widowed father David Sr. (Paul Sorvino) announces that he is to marry again. But David has plenty to see when he learns the identity of his dad's future bride. In addition, a few unsubtle references are made to the many Emmy nominations received by Moonlighting during its second season; and by the way, what's the story about that sombrero and serape?
