Cinderella-story comedy about a pert
young waitress who found her handsome - and rich - young prince.
Brad Benson first walked into the Liberty Coffee Shop, Angie thought he
was poor and began slipping him pastries. It turned out that he was not
only a pediatrician from the medical building across the street, but scion of
one of Philadelphia's richest
families. They fell in love and married, much to the dismay of Brad's
overbearing big sister, Joyce, and stuffy father, Randall, and to the bemusement
of Angie's down-to-earth mama, Theresa.
Mr. Falco had walked out 19 years earlier - "He went to get the paper"
- but Theresa still kept a place at the table for him.
She had raised Angie and younger sister Marie by running a newsstand. The
Bensons had a different set of problems. Snobbish Joyce was three times divorced
and undergoing therapy with a psychiatrist who hated her. DiDi was Angie's big-hearted,
big-mouthed best friend at the coffee shop, and Phipps
was the butler.
newlyweds moved into Brad's mansion, but the surroundings were too much
so they later bought a smaller house, where Brad set up his practice on
the first floor. At first, Angie bought the coffee shop, to keep
herself busy, but later she traded it for a beauty parlor, where Gianni was the
aired reruns of
Angie on weekday mornings from June-September 1985.
