As Moonlighting begins its fourth season, detectives David (Bruce Willis) and Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) wonder if they should continue their romance after their memorable boudoir tussle in the closing moments of Season Three. As the couple weighs their options, three fantasy sequences play themselves out. In one, David consults Ray Charles in matters of the heart; in another Maddie is given sage advice by Dr. Joyce Brothers; and in the third, the dilemma is reconfigured as a black-and-white episode of The Honeymooners, with David as Ralph, Maddie as Alice, David's brother Richard (Charles Rocket) as Norton and the couple's secretary Agnes (Allyce Beasley) as Trixie!

Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) has left for parts unknown, and her partner-lover David (Bruce Willis) is sore annoyed. Burying himself in his detective work, David accepts an assignment from one Donald Chase (a pre-Roseanne John Goodman), who is willing to pay $10,000 to locate a previous "one night stand", who likewise left without a trace after the BIG MOMENT. Episode highlights include a fantasy argument wherein both David and Maddie show up in "Claymation" form.

It's been two weeks since David (Bruce Willis) has seen Maddie (Cybill Shepherd), his partner at the Blue Moon Detective Agency--and his lover, or so he'd been led to believe. With no one else around, David teams with the obsequious Bert Viola (Curtis Armstrong) for his latest case, involving another missing person. This time, David's quarry is a reluctant groom who left his bride waiting at the altar several years earlier--a situation that unfortunately strikes extremely close to home for our hero.

Three weeks have gone by since David (Bruce Willis) and Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) have seen each other. Having retreated to her parents' house in Chicago, Maddie is more depressed than ever, prompting her mom (Eva Marie Saint) and dad (Robert Webber) to throw her a cheer-up party. Meanwhile, back in LA, David and his erstwhile buddy Bert Viola (Curtis Armstrong) have decided to forget their problems by going on a prowl for new girlfriends. Suffice to say that one of the boys is luckier than the other!

In this first episode of a two-part story, David (Bruce Willis) finally discovers that Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) is pregnant. En route from LA to Chicago for a (hopeful) reunion with Maddie, David is sidetracked by convict felon "Mad Dog" Hundley (played by Hollywood producer Tony Bill), and before long our hero finds himself taking Mad Dog's place in a brutal prison farm. Meanwhile, David and Maddie's secretary Agnes (Allyce Beasley) comforts her new beau Bert Viola (Curtis Armstrong), who moans that the Moonlighting fans haven't "warmed up" to his character yet!

In this conclusion of a two-part story, David (Bruce Willis) attempts to escape from a chain gang in order to be reunited with his pregnant sweetheart Maddie (Cybill Shepherd, who is represented only by her voice in this episode). It looks like David's only hope for freedom is to follow the "musical" advice of his fellow inmates. Meanwhile, with one of the Moonlighting stars out of circulation, the nervous ABC executives begin auditioning potential "David Addison" replacements!

Now that he knows Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) is pregnant, David (Bruce Willis) is pressured to do the "right thing" by Maddie's overprotective father Alexander (Robert Webber). Meanwhile, our harried hero must also deal with the increasingly disgruntled employees of the Blue Moon Detective Agency. It is clear by this point that David and Maddie love each other--and also that they may very well allow false pride to impede their future happiness.

Cybill Shepherd doesn't appear in this week's episode, leaving Allyce Beasley, in her familiar role as the Blue Moon Detective Agency's ditzy secretary Agnes Dipesto, as the heroine by default. Imogene Coca guest stars as Agnes' equally scatterbrained mother Clara. Danger rears its ugly head when Clara returns from a vacation in Mexico with a seemingly worthless ceramic souvenir--for which several nasty-looking characters are willing to commit murder!

This week's episode opens as a helpful nurse recaps the previous weeks' activities to an ABC executive who'd been in a coma ever since he found out that David (Bruce Willis) and Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) had still not gotten back together! As it happens, David is ruminating over his upcoming "role" in the birth of Maddie's baby. Perhaps David should enroll in a Lamaze class--a solution that (at first glance, anyway) makes a lot more sense than having him "practice" childbirth with his friend Bert Viola (Curtis Armstrong), who has stuffed a pillow in his shirt for the occasion!

Pregnant with David's baby, Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) has decided to return from Chicago to LA via train--but she's still not sure whether or not she and David should resume their relationship. En route, Maddie meets a dweebish fellow passenger named Walter Bishop (Dennis Dugan), to whom she pours out her heart--and a generous supply of story exposition. Meanwhile, Agnes (Allyce Beasley) and Bert (Curtis Armstrong) anxiously await Maddie's return so that they can fill her in as to what occurred in the episodes she has missed--little suspecting that Maddie has a bit of startling news of her own!
