Having done all right for itself during its six-week opening season, Wings was renewed for a full second season in the fall of 1990; at the same time, the series moved from Thursdays to Fridays, and thus no longer could rely upon its "sister" series Cheers as a lead-in. In the first episode of season two, Helen (Crystal Bernard), owner of the lunch counter at Sandpiper Air, is still sticking hard and fast to her self-imposed rule to "never date a pilot" -- and that includes her lifelong friends Joe (Tim Daly) and Brian (Steven Weber). Hoping to break down Helen's resistance, Brian hires an actor named Matt Sargent (Craig Bierko) to impersonate Helen's "dream man," intending to reveal that the guy is a pilot the moment Helen is "in the mood." But the results aren't quite what Brian had in mind.
