Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This final episode of The Partridge Family marks a one-time-only teaming of two Academy Award winners: Series star Shirley Jones and guest performer George Chakiris. The latter is cast as Navy captain Chuck Corwin, who back in his high school days was the boyfriend of Shirley Partridge (Shirley Jones)--who knew him as "Cuddles." As Shirley and the Captain renew their relationship, the Partridge youngsters are divided over whether to accept "Cuddles" as a surrogate father--with Danny (Danny Bonaduce) convinced that the handsome career officer is nothing more than a heartbreaking lothario. Song: "Roller Coaster".
