CHRIS ISAAK GUESTS STARS AS ROY ORBISON, JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT RETURNS AS NANCY SINATRA WITH ALISON SWEENEY AND FARAH FATH ENTERTAINING IN THE USO, AS JOHN ANISTON AND FRANCES REID APPEAR IN PRYOR TV AND RADIO, AND TYLER HILTON AS A SINGER - After running away from home, Meg decides she needs a new look and enlists Roxanne for a makeover. A worried Helen finds Meg staying at Roxanne's, and asks her to return home, but her relationship with her parents continue to be strained until something drastic happens with her boyfriend. In addition to dealing with his problems at home, Jack realizes that he has some issues at work with Henry, and makes a pivotal decision that will change the future of Pryor TV & Radio. On the other side of the world, JJ and the troops are entertained by the USO, a much needed distraction as JJ struggles with the realities of war. Chris Isaak ("Let Me Down Easy," "The Chris Isaak Show") guest stars as Roy Orbison singing, "Pretty Woman." Jennifer Love Hewitt reprises her role as Nancy Sinatra with "These Boot Are Made for Walking", and "Sunny." NBC's "Days Of Our Lives" guest stars with Alison Sweeney as Miss USA, Farah Fath as a Playboy Bunny, John Aniston as a man seeking employment at Pryor TV & Radio, and Frances Reid as a woman watching the premiere episode of "Days Of Our Lives" in the store. Tyler Hilton guest stars as a singer singing the Beatles "I've Just Seen a Face."

NOTE:"Days Of Our Lives" premiered on 11/08/65. Because the time frame of this episode is early November, 1965, the Nancy Sinatra "Boots" single wasn't even released yet. It didn't hit the Billboard Hot 100 until 1/22/66. The situation with this song is even worse, considering it was first aired a few episodes ago, which is a few months ago in 1965 time.

While it is interesting that they used "Bookends" to bookend the episode, it is unfortunate that they chose to use a song 2.5 years into the future (the album hit #1 on 5/25/68).
