If Gary Marshall is the one who produced Family ties, he seems to have a history of doing that like when he had Alex Keaton's girlfriend Ellen Reed leave. Those two were extremely likeable even though Ellen was a communist. Her hair style and glasses remind me of Jeanette on the Chipmunks.
Take care and God bless
I liked the characters of Ashley and Heather, but the whole Fonzie-suddenly-has-a-steady-girl storyline seemed a bit forced. Wasn't it from the season where Joanie and Chachi left for their spinoff? I think the producers and writers were looking for ways to fill the departure of two main characters. And then there was Flip. Who couldn't like a little bit of Billy Warlock?
