didn't know you Jewish people were tall enough to care about basketball.
||Joel is "light loony" and, with his enormous amount
of excess energy, coaches the Cicely Quarks in their annual basketball game
against Sleetmute. An old friend drops in to visit Ruth-Anne and outfits the town from his collection of fashionable ensembles.
Joel unknowingly becomes "light loony" during his first experience with twenty-four-hour
sunlight. As a result, the usually dismal doctor is excessively happy and energetic.
After not sleeping for days, he is amazed...that he is not even tired. When
asked to coach the "Quarks," Cicely's town basketball team, he is thrilled to
have a place to funnel his energy. "Coach" Fleischman gives the team everything
he's got and more in an effort to beat Sleetmute in the annual game. Unfortunately,
nature sees to it that Joel never has the opportunity to experience his moment
(guest star Jim Haynie), a
traveling apparel salesman and old friend of Ruth-Anne's,
visits Cicely for the first time in many years. The townspeople immediately
welcome his return and are excited about shopping in his trailer full of wonderful
garments. Gillis decides he would like to be more than a friend to Ruth-Anne
and proposes marriage to her.
|24 hours round the clock light has Joel in a hyper-active, euphoric sexually
charged state. He finds himself with unbound energy, much of it secual and directed
at Maggie. The spirits of Cicely's basketball team,
the Quarks, are flagging. After Joel excitedly declares his love of basketball, Maurice names him the new coach. Clothing salesman,
Gillis Toomey, a sweet-looking man in his early sixties, returns to town. Gillis
is enamoured of Ruth-Anne and while selling her a new white dress, asks her
to marry him. Ruth-Anne politely declines, but is persuaded to kiss the cahrming
haberdasher. The sight of Shelly in her cheerleading
outfit puts Holling in the mood to do the wild thing,
but Shelly is incensed by Holling's insensitivity, and informs Holling that
her uniform stands for P-R-I-D-E. Tell 'em, Shelly.
Shelly idolized another cheerleader, Elyssa Carpenter of the Calgary Cannons. Bernard
shows up yearly for the basketball season. Joel went to Camp Indian Head in
his youth. Maurice has another brilliant scheme - capitalize on the sun and
make Cicely "God's Health Spa." Ruth-Anne's not a great kisser.
