Episode InfoEdit

Episode #78 - Season 4, Episode 11

First Aired: December 19, 1985


Mallory is working at the boutique and catches a girl, Jessie Blake (played by Martha Plimpton), stealing.  She begins to feel some compassion for the girl and wishes she could do something for her.  Mallory invites Jessie to dinner, and a bond of friendship develops.  When Jessie shows up at the store, she steals again (and Mallory is devastated to find that nothing has really changed).


  • Steven presents a box to Alex that looks like one he had when he was a baby (his "Ba-ba").  As he does so, he says, "Sweet dreams."  Interestingly, it was just one episode earlier that Alex could have used something to help him sleep ("How Do You Sleep?")
