Episode Info

In one of the series' best and most poignant episodes, Linda Gillen guest stars as Amy, the mentally challenged daughter of Laverne and Shirley's landlady Edna (Betty Garrett). Left in the care of the girls, the sweet, childlike Amy unexpectedly finds a kindred spirit in the form of brash, goofy Lenny (Michael McKean). The overprotective Edna worries that Lenny may take advantage of Amy, but this proves not to be the case at all: neither Amy is quite as helpless nor Lenny quite as insensitive as everyone assumes them to be.
