But she brings along a framed portrait of her deceased Aunt Emma, who always disparaged Bert and wanted to go on a cruise, but never did. Isaac's former school classmate, Skeet Jamison (Darrow Igus), is a penniless hustler working as a promoter for the Harlem Globetrotters, en route to a game in Puerto Vallarta. 17-year-old Gary Atkins (Philip McKeon) falls for his father Josh's secretary Karen (Irena Ferris), who is already romancing Josh (Bert Convy). And Josh joins the cruise later, creating a menage-a-trois. Written by Maisie Fleckum See less
