Frequently bought together



Although widow and single mom Alice Hyatt (Linda Lavin) still hopes to one day pursue a singing career, financial realities force her to retain her job as waitress at Mel's Diner in Phoenix, Arizona in Season Two of Alice. Likewise still on the premises are Alice's explosive boss Mel (Vic Tayback), her fellow waitresses Flo (Polly Holliday) and Vera (Beth Howland), and her now 13-year-old son Tommy (Philip McKeon). This season, Mel's superb home-made chili draws even more steady customers to the diner, among them Henry (Marvin Kaplan), Jason (Patrick J. Cronin) and Cecil (Bob McClurg) Season Two guest stars include George Burns as "Himself", whom impressionable Vera mistakes for the Almighty after watching Burns in the movie Oh, God!; singer Jerry Reed, likewise playing himself, who may have to provide free concert tickets to his former babysitter Flo; Desi Arnaz and Janis Paige as an amorous photographer and his long-suffering spouse; Victor Jory as an ancient Indian who claims that Mel's Diner has been built on a sacred burial ground; Morey Amsterdam as a nightclub manager who hires Alice for a singing gig; versatile comic actor Bob Dishy as a food-additive protestor who vows to kill himself in the middle of Mel's dining room; character player Burton Gilliam (Blazing Saddles) as Flo's bronc-bustin' brother Jimmy Joe; and Richard Libertini (the "talk to the hand" dictator from the movie The In-Laws) as a wealthy Arab who wants to add Flo to his harem! ~ Hal Erickson
