OK confession time here. I DID some work making print ads and commercials as I paid my way through college. Modeling is NOT glamorous, at least not any of the stuff I did. Though it was cool when I saw my mug on the Zimm Zamm box or in an Arby's commercial, it didn't quite cover the hours of hamming it up for the camera. While I got to meet a ton of lovely ladies during those 4 years or so, none of it turned to romance....it was a job.

Hi graycav. Glad to have the male perspective on this!!
I have been thinking along the lines of what Diane said: "I am not sure that before David, Maddie realized she was lonely"....
I have always thought that David made her think about certain things in her life that she knew she could stand to change about herself but was afraid "to walk barefoot". I guess I am saying that David's motto for life was have fun.....get busy livin' or get busy dyin'......... Maddie's was a control thing, everything planned, no spontaneity.
David made her see that there was more to life than working and being in bed alone by 9:30. And then she sort of reached out to McCain because as someone has already said, he was a "safe" man. Or appeared to be. Maybe she changed her mind once she realized he had faked his own death. Who would REALLY do that?!?!.........
In fact, I think that's what Maddie's story throughout the entire series boils down to. She had one reality, one existance, one life until the bottom fell out and she met David. Now she has a new reality, a new life, and a new sense of self, and she struggles between accepting it and embracing it, or rejecting it and trying to get the old one back.
I agree, ditzy. And David has the same struggle--they are just starting from nearly opposite ends of the "spontaneity/control" spectrum.
"I don't want you losing any more sleep over me." "Believe me, if and when I ever find myself 'over' you, the last thing I'll be thinking about is sleeping."
Location, location, location.......I love the fact that ML did lots of shooting out on the streets of LA........not a whole lot is recognizable in this episode, but I did catch a few seconds of what I think is Hollywood Boulevard.
I love LA, and am familiar with some areas, but certainly not an expert. I would love to know more.....but then sometimes it spoils the magic. For example, I think most of you know I live in Philadelphia...but can I tell you that in any and all of the Rocky movies, the path he takes running through the city is the most mixed up, convoluted thing you would ever want to see. Ah...the magic of tv and movies

I don't miss the office staff at this point, because the character development was ongoing between the main characters. Obviously with the dialogue workload Bruce and Cybill were under, it was only a matter of time before they had to introduce a larger ensemble, and thus allow some second unit shooting.
