  1. I also recall Robert Symonds from the premiere episode of The Love Boat, where he played the new husband of Capt. Steubing’s ex-wife, Stacey, played by Bonnie Franklin. After Capt. Steubing told her to go to her room for her general obnoxiousness through the whole cruise, he backed up Steubing quietly but firmly, “Stacey, go to your room”.
