Episode Info

Rob (Dick Van Dyke) becomes temporary producer of "The Alan Brady Show" when temperamental guest star Paula Marshall (Lola Albright) refuses to work with Mel Cooley (Richard Deacon). Because Paula is one of Rob's favorite performers, Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) is none too happy that her husband and the sexy celebrity will be in such close quarters. As it turns out, however, Rob's problem is not avoiding Paula's charms, but instead trying to figure out a diplomatic way to make her stop being so egotistical and disruptive on the set.
