Julie and Dave Willis marry after a whirlwind courtship. They move into a small, windowless apartment whose redeeming feature is access to a breathtaking rooftop view of San Francisco. Their budget is tight and the pilot episode concerns Dave’s dismay when Julie reveals her wealthy background and her parents make a surprise visit. The version of the pilot shot in black and white was never aired; it differs slightly from the color version. Along with the apartment come neighbors Stan and Carol Parker. Stan is a “freelance genius” and Carol is his admiring wife. The landlady, “Mrs. Loomis,” is never seen again. It may have been that the creators felt there were too many extroverted personalities in the series, so they decided to eliminate the character.
