Go To

An American sitcom that follows the head of a lingerie company, Veronica "Ronnie" Chase (Kirstie Alley) in New York City after she leaves her cheating husband (Christopher McDonald) and begins her new life.

The series also features Dan Cortese, Wallace Langham, Daryl Mitchell, Kathy Najimy, Robert Prosky, Ron Silver, and Lorri Bagley.

It aired on NBC for three seasons.

Tropes for the series:

  • Big Applesauce: Takes place in New York City.
  • No Pregger Sex: Subverted in an episode where one character is afraid he may harm the baby if he has sex with his pregnant girlfriend. Someone else explains the truth to him by using an analogy involving a car, a garage, and a house. It ends up something along the lines of "No matter how big your car is, driving it into the garage cannot harm the baby in the house".
  • One-Steve Limit: In one episode, Leo dates a woman named Peri, which makes things a bit awkward between Leo and his friend Perry. In order to alleviate the tension, Leo attempts to Perry to go by his Embarrassing First Name "Laird". When the situation is finally explained to Peri, she offers to go by her middle name "Yerma". Unfortunately this is not less awkward.
  • One-Word Title:Pilot.
  • Sticky Fingers: Veronica hires a new model for a fashion show and is amazed as throughout the interview, the woman constantly picks up things and puts them in her purse without the slightest acknowledgement that she's stealing. She continues this behavior throughout the show, stealing the light bulbs from the runway, blithely declaring, "Those are my light bulbs!" when Veronica confronts her. Veronica finally gets fed up and fires her when the woman has the nerve to steal her bracelet right off of her wrist and insist, "This is my bracelet!". The woman leaves in a huff, but not before taking a folding chair along with her.
