Episode of Series “Adolescent Development”.
A document on the lives of fictitious Bob and Mary, focusing on the teen years. Here, lovestruck Mary is in her “hangout” stage when she always has a need to be “more sophisticated than she actually is.” Cross to Bob where his mother discovers a crude naughty drawing in his room and narrator Lorne Greene croons: “It became apparent that his interest in girls was getting to be more than casual.” But happily, Mary has maintained her virginal purity: “They knew that this time it was for keeps.” says Greene as the two gaze at a window display of refrigerators. But the couple refuse to succumb to temptation until they’re married.
