Peter is mad that the work he and the Hospital Benefit committee have done for their latest fundraiser was pulled at the last minute by their sponsor. With all her work contacts, Doris believes that she can organize a fashion show as a replacement fundraising event, even on such short notice. Peter asks Doris to liaise directly with someone from the committee to get it going. That person ends up being a nurse by the name of Lois Frazier. Despite Lois' seemingly cool attitude toward Doris by some implied personal connection to Peter, and the committee's reluctance to go ahead with the idea, Doris, with a little help from Cy, is able to convince them to let her go ahead. But something that Doris learns from Jackie half way through the show itself in combination with the fact that Doris felt Peter provided no support for her in dealing with the committee have the potential to destroy Doris' relationship with Peter.

DD still looked great at 50!
17 December 2018 | by jeffkooistraSee all my reviews

This episode is mostly an excuse for Doris to show off dozens of early 70s fashions. Not much of a plot but it has something of a variety show feel. Well worth seeing just to note how great Doris Day still looked at 50. At one point she opens a robe to reveal the bikini she is modeling and women half her age would kill for her figure!
