    No idea what's in that box.

    I think there was a Love, American Style episode that spawned Happy Days.
    "Here You Leave the World of California Today and Enter the World of, um, er, California Today."

    Indeed it was...thanks, sj, for a reminder for what a fun show Love, American Style was - very well written - this episode featuring Marion Ross, still "Ronny" Howard, and Anson Williams. Written by the great Garry Marhsall, a TV icon on several generations both on, and especially off, the screen.

    Further...you may recall that Mork and Mindy spun off from Happy Days...Jerry Paris got the germ of the idea for Mork from the famous "walnut" episode of the Dick Van Dyke show...which Paris directed, also written in part by Marshall.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
