...there were episodes about being pressured by her boyfriend to "further their relationship" which I thought was well done, especially when Jennie's mom talked to her about it, as well as other episodes about school, clothes , dating ( or not having a boyfriend), curfews etc.I remember one great Kate And Allie episode in which Jennie (Allison) brought home a new friend named Carter (played by Martha Byrne who was with Allison in Annie on Broadway), and Carter was teaching Jennie how to smoke, and Allie walked into the room with a look of stark horror. Later on, Carter shoplifted a scarf at the mall and made it look as if Jennie had done it, and Jennie was arrested. I was present at that live taping on January 22, 1985 in New York, and it was very interesting seeing how an episode of a sitcom evolves into a finished product.
I also attended another taping the following December for an episode in which Jennie was working, and her boss told her he would fire her if she didn't go on a date with him.
I remember her coming on to Vicki Lawrence's old talk show and Vicki kept trying to get her to sing Tomorrow. Allison was being a good sport, but kept saying she's rather not. Finally Vicki said just sing the big one at the end of the song, and then Vicki belted out "TOMORROW!" So, Allison then just simply imitated Vicki's belt and the audience went wild with applause. She looked so surprised.It used to irritate Allison when the producers and writers of the show would always make her sing "Tomorrow," as if they think it's the only song she knows!
Later on, she sang the Patty Smyth/Scandal 1982 hit "Good-bye To You" on the show and did a great job.
