|Full Credits||Scripts||More Images|
Selma's old beau wants to rekindle their romance and a substitute judge isn't what he's cracked up to be.
Selma's old boyfriend, Marty, comes after her again. While Harry is shut in his office for an annual file review, his super-efficient replacement, Judge Kopelson, charms the entire staff, but a background check reveals him to be a fraud.
In this episode, Jack Gilford guest stars as Marty Ratner, an old flame of caustic, chain-smoking court matron Selma (Selma Diamond). Marty wants to make up for lost time and whisk Selma off to Florida, but she's heard that song before. Meanwhile, in Harry's absence, the courtroom is presided over by Judge Arnold Koppelson (Phil Leeds), who proves to be an excellent replacement in every respect save one: He's not really a judge!
