Adlon would two decades later costar on the cutting-edge HBO sitcom Lucky Louie). Meanwhile, Judge Harry (Harry Anderson) determines the fate of a robbery victim (Philip Bruns) charged with mugging a group of Japanese tourists, and Dan (John Larroquette) adopts an elaborate strategy to snag a sexy woman (Peggy Pope) who loves sports.
