Episode Adopted by: Carol <aka> C_Dean n C_Al
Sam leaps into his second famous person as he becomes the noted sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer! While having a rough time dealing with the subject matter of Dr. Ruth's radio shows, he has to put two of his co-workers together in a relationship and at the same time help a young woman who is being sexually harrassed by her boss at work. Meanwhile, Al gets his own therapy from the real Dr. Ruth in the waiting room.
(ep5.13 / # 68114)
Leaping from one woman to the next, Sam is having himself a good ol time!
Sam is seated at a microphone and is being asked a sex question via a speaker in a soundproof booth in a radio station. Being the prude his is, he is shocked until he glances up at a mirror and sees DR. RUTH! OH BOY! He tells Al that he has to get him out of here. Hummm where have we heard that before?
This would be a heavenly job for Al. But he is too busy in the waiting room talking with Dr. Ruth, or Dr. Ruthie as he is so affectionately calling her. She is helping him work through his problems with women.
Doug, the announcer, and Debbie, the producer, are constantly arguing. Dr. Ruth says they are perfect for each other, and thats why Sam is there. But Sam says hes there to help Annie? Neither one of them know the real reason.
Annie is a secretary for a law firm in Manhattan; someday she wants to be a lawyer. Her boss is trying to make a move on her and she is keeping him at bay. She calls Dr. Ruth ahhh Sam to get some advice. Her boss, Jonathan, eventually assaults her. Sam and Al come to her rescue.
Woman Caller: "Well?"
SAM: "Ahhh well well well what?"
Woman Caller: "What do you think?"
SAM: "Ahhh could you ahhh re repeat that question?"
Woman Caller: "Is the size of a mans feet related to the size of his love mussel?"
SAM-Dr. Ruth (mirror image): "Oh Boy!"
Woman Caller: "Dr Ruth? Are you there? (Do you want me to repeat the) question?"
SAM: "No! Dont repeat it I heard it just fine. The mans size of his foot you know clowns wear really big shoes."
Woman Caller: "The guy Im dating has very small feet."
SAM: "Well ahhh my feet [laughs] of course I would do who would want to know about Dr. Ruths feet. But I have a friend who has n could we go to the next caller please?"
Man Caller: "This is Tony from Lindenhurst. I really dig your show."
SAM: "Thank you Tony."
Man Caller: "I got this problem with my girlfriend, no matter where we go she always puts her hands on my crotch."
SAM: "Hummm ahhh have you tried just holding hands."
Man Caller: "Well she does it when Im driving on the turnpike!"
SAM: "Make her sit in the back seat! NEXT!" [Sam is getting very agitated and just throwing answers left and right that make no sense LOL]
Debbie: "What has gotten into her?"
Doug: "I think its funny."
Debbie: "You think balancing a spoon on your nose is funny."
Doug: "Yah "
SAM: "Yes what is your problem "
Woman Caller #2: "Well I get orgasms so incredible and overwhelming that I end up pushing my husband out of bed. The last time he got all bruised and scraped. Is there any answer for me?"
SAM: "Kneepads! NEXT!"
Doug: "Shes on a roll!"
Debbie: "I said commercial!"
Doug: "Well be right back with Dr. Ruth Westheimer after these important messages."
Debbie: "Are you all right Ruth?"
SAM: "Im Im fine dont worry about me!" [You hear the IC door open]
AL: "Kneepads? Kinky!"
SAM: "Ahhh have you been here Al listening in?"
AL: "Yah Ive heard a little of it." [Smiling]
SAM: "Ive gotta get outta here fast!"
AL: "Why? This sounds like a great leap to me! You just sit here and ya talk about sex!"
AL: "Sam, look at it as a learning experience."
SAM: "It may sound like fun to you but its not for me! Theyre asking some very embarrassing questions!"
AL: "Sam, sex is not dirty. Its a very natural thing. Being frank about it and educating your children to be morally responsible and safe is better than sweeping it under the rug." [He says this line with a weird accent I have now idea what he was trying to do here???]
SAM: "Thats a pretty mature attitude coming from someone like you." [Looking at Al with his mouth open and a quizzical look on his face]
AL: "Oh its not coming from me, its coming for the real Dr. Ruth in the waiting room. But you remember it until Ziggy can figure out why youre here."
SAM: "No Al you cant leave! Youre youre an expert on this kind of stuff! You gotta help me answer these questions!"
AL: "No youre doing fine."
SAM: "No Im not doing fine! You gotta stay here and help me answer these questions!"
AL: "Oh hey you know the question about the shoe size?"
SAM: "Yah "
AL: "Just call me Bigfoot!"
Doug: "Going back to our calls "
SAM: "AL! AL! " [Al steps back into the IC]

Sam changes history by making Annie quit her job. Al tells him that Annie is going to die in the next two hours. He says, "Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy!"
SAM: "Are you okay? Go call the police." [Annie nods her head that she is and leaves the room to go call]
Jonathon: "Theres no need for the police."
SAM: "Youre not gonna leave till the police get here!" [Sam grabs his arm and he tries to get away]
Jonathon: "Who the hell do you think you are?"
AL: "Hes not who you think he is!"
Sam and Jonathon go at it. Sam flips him to the ground and in a mirror you see the stunt double. Very cool.
AL: "Good flip and kick Sam!"
SAM: "Did the job!"
AL: "Ziggys now sayin that Annie she goes to law school, becomes an attorney and shes a pioneer in the field of sexual harassment."
SAM: "What about Doug and Debbie?"

And thatll be tomorrow right here on my show."
Dr. Ruth: "What do you mean? You dont know."
AL: "I dont know how I feel."
Dr. Ruth: "Youve been going out for how long now? Four years?"
AL: "Give or take a couple of months? Yah Tinas crazy about me!"
Dr. Ruth: "And you are crazy about her."
AL: "Well I I "
Dr. Ruth: "Arent you?"
AL: "Well I wouldnt say that I like her "
Dr. Ruth: "You just like her?"
AL: "I like her a lot! A lot!"
Dr. Ruth: "Does that mean you love her?"
AL: "I "
Dr. Ruth: "It may have four letters but love is not a dirty word. Say it!"
AL: "Ahhh I cant!"
Dr. Ruth: "Why not?"
AL: "I said it once long ago and once is enough." [He sits up on the edge of the table and Dr. Ruth is standing next to him. *this is Deans best scene of the whole series it gets me every time I watch it*]
Dr. Ruth: "That must have been one special love."
AL: "It was."
Dr. Ruth: "So special you could never love anyone else?"
AL: "Not like that."
Dr. Ruth: "Of course not like that! Who is asking you to love everyone the same. People are different unique so why shouldnt our love for them be different? This person you loved "
AL: "That was my 1st wife Beth." [the camera gets a good shot of those big browns :)]
Dr. Ruth: "Did you love this Beth more than you love Tina?"
AL: "Yes. But it was different."
Dr. Ruth: "So you love Tina different than Beth, but you still love her."
Dr. Ruth: "Did you hear what you just said?"
AL: "I said I love Tina different I I said it!" [Al now has a big smile on his face]
Dr. Ruth: "Maybe I tricked you into it but you said it! Now say it again and dog the different part thats a given!" [She walks away from Al and faces the camera]
AL: "I love Tina." [He gets up and walks to Dr. Ruth]
Dr. Ruth: "Now go tell her!"
AL: "Ok gee thanks doc!" [This is so cute he leans over and gives her a kiss on the cheek awww ;) She gives a little wave to Al as he walks away. She then walks around the table and faces the camera]
Dr. Ruth: "Next " [She gestures with her hand as she speaks]
And Dr. Ruth leaps out and Nigel Corrington leaps in snarling and showing his teeth
AL: "I thought we already solved my problems?"
Dr. Ruth: "We identified your basic fear of abandonment. Now we have to work on getting you in touch with your feelings, and verbalizing them. We need to open you up."
AL: "Oh but Im Im a very open person with with verbal feelings."
Dr. Ruth: "Well then tell me about your girlfriend?"
AL: "Ah Ah her name is Tina."
Dr. Ruth: "Uh-huh ... so tell me more."
AL: "More about Tina?"
Dr. Ruth: "Uh-huh."
AL: "Ah well ummm oh well, ha-ha-ha, shes got ... great ... casabas!"
Dr. Ruth: "What are these casabas?"
AL: "Well you know melons, ho-has, honkers, hooters, headlights, ah ta-tas teeters, tweeters, tom-toms, tee-tees?" [His face is all contorted trying to say just one word LOL]
Dr. Ruth: "Say it!"
AL: "Im trying to say it! Meatballs, mangos, cream pies, cupcakes, eh bangers, bouncers, bolumbas!"
Dr. Ruth: "Al!"
AL: "Bazongas! BREASTS! ... I said it!" [With a very self-satisfied look on his face]
Dr. Ruth: "You see ... it wasnt that hard."
