    About IreneEdit

    When Sam, who leaps into Rabbi David Basch, who has just conducted the Bat Mitzvah of Karen, Irene's daughter (played by Lindsay Fisher), he finds a quite upset Joe, Irene's husband, who refuses to dance with her, as she dances with a friend, Bert Glasserman (Russ Tamblyn), whom he, as with possibly even his brother David suspects that one or the other of having an affair with. In the original timeline of events before Sam's leap into the situation, Irene had a one night stand which gets found out and destroys the family, something Karen never gets over.

    When Sam, as David, tries to tell her the truth about Bert, a confirmed bachelor with a reputation for romancing "grieving women" and who is planning to write a book about how to do so, with her story in the sixth chapter, she doesn't believe him, until he presents a rough draft of the truth to her, as she then resists Bert's advances.
