San Francisco psychiatrist Alexandra Bennett (Bonnie Franklin, of TV's One Day at a Time
) is dumped by her lover and finds the dating scene more than a little daunting. Her married best friends, Karen and Phillip (Tyne Daly, Peter Bonerz), know a handsome, divorced landscape designer named Nick Richmond (Robert Klein) -- he and Phillip play rugby together. Karen thinks they're a perfect match, but getting them together proves no easy task. Karen, meanwhile, goes on a series of awful dates and wonders whether she'll ever meet anyone new. A time capsule.
