He would have been better off with that character rather than "Maggie."

I still think it's inappropiate for a parent to date their child's teacher-lol If I was Arnold I would have asked to be transferred to another school

Mr. Drummond should have had enough sense to realize that was a distraction to his son's life in school. That was a low Drummond point, if you ask me.

Damn, Mr. Drummond was dating women who were either 10 years younger or more than he was. He must have been the first Howard Marshall II before we all knew Howard Marshall.

That's okay. I just called Mr. Drummond's dates speed dates. One minute: the ring. The next minute...dump. However, an aerobics instructor can never turn your down, no matter what your status is.

Now that we look at Dixie Carter might have went to find another jod because she wanted to keep working and it was at least 2 months before ABC picked it up

Yes she played the wife after Dixie Carter (Dixie was my favorite as well) and played Arnold's teacher, Nancy Osborne, who Mr. D dated for one episode.


IMDB.com confirms it. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0595039/ She also appeared on Designing Women.

No. She was fired "indirectly" by Gary Coleman. Gary did not like her and it was the producers that let her go at the end of the season. I talked to Shavar Ross (Dudley) about this five years ago. He confirmed it.

do you know if Shavar Ross or anybody else from the cast of Different Strokes has ever posted on this board?

To my knowledge, no. I know that the actor who played the character "Robbie". has seen the board but that is all. I used to work late nights and would chat back and forth with Shavar via e-mail for a couple of years. He does no stay in contacy with Gary Coleman and he wanted to followup with Nikki Swazye(Lisa). That is pretty much it. Todd(our Sitcoms Partriarch Board Leader) had asked me to get that information about Dixie from Shavar if possible. Hope this helps a little.
