Too Close to Home
Diana Donahue (Judith Light) won't let her son Nick (Rick Schroder) go. When Nick, at age 29, finally decides to leave the family nest, she tries to kill herself. The attempt brings her dutiful son to her hospital bedside, which, ironically, is also where Nick meets nurse Abby Fletcher (Sarah Trigger). Nick and Abby marry, decisively separating the son from his ultra-needy mother -- unless, that is, the psychotic matriarch can get rid of her daughter-in-law permanently.
