His friends believe the worst when Dan starts dating a homely, gauche woman who's heir to $40 million.


Dan becomes engaged to an ugly duckling heiress, but everyone is surprised to hear him swear his feelings are genuine.

Plot Summary

Everyone jumps to the obvious conclusion when inveterate lothario and infamous opportunist Dan (John Larroquette) begins dating Patty Douglas (Mimi Kennedy), an unattractive woman who is primed to inherit a fortune. But Dan indignantly insists that he's genuinely in love--and that he'd be genuinely in love even if Patty weren't worth forty million bucks! This episode marks the first appearance of William Utay in the role of philosophical derelict Phil Sanders.
