Judge Harry and the gang refuse to take Christine and her new beau seriously: he's old enough to be her father.


Everyone pokes fun at Christine's relationship with Ted, a senior citizen.

Plot Summary

Christine (Markie Post) becomes the object of ridicule for the Night Court staff when she begins dating a wealthy sexagenerian named Ted (played by soap-opera stalwart Peter Hansen). The staffers are convinced that Christine isn't really interested in the old man romantically, but instead regards him merely as a father figure. No one is more vocal on the subject that Harry (Harry Anderson)--who has a hard time hiding his jealousy for the fortunate Ted.
