Bridget was the eldest child, despite Cuoco being six years younger than her on-screen little sister (Amy Davidson), and was portrayed as "the most beautiful girl in the school." She had several boyfriends throughout the series and used her feminine wiles to exert significant control over the boys she encountered.
She has said that she learned a lot about comedy from her work with the late John Ritter.
Meg becomes unexpectedly jealous and hunts desperately for a boyfriend to make Neil jealous; she ends up settling for Jake Tucker, who only wants her to buy him things.
She finally tells Neil that she wants to be his girlfriend and signs the original contract to prove her sincerity; the Goldmans quickly put her to work as a slave plowing a field in their front yard.
The first three episodes of the show's second season had been completed when Ritter reportedly suffered an undiagnosed aortic dissection.
After Ritter had experienced discomfort during his rehearsal of the show that afternoon, crew members took him to a nearby Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, where he suddenly died that night following a misdiagnosis of a heart attack.
In 1967, Ritter was a contestant on The Dating Game.
While still in college, Ritter traveled to England, Scotland, Holland, and West Germany to perform in plays.
After his graduation from USC in 1970, his first TV acting experience was a campus revolutionary in the TV series, Dan August, starring Burt Reynolds and Norman Fell.
Don Knotts called Ritter the "greatest physical comedian on the planet". His father, Tex Ritter, was a singing cowboy/matinee-star of German American descent, and his mother, Dorothy Fay (née Southworth), was an actress.
Ritter attended Hollywood High School, where he was student-body president.
