In an upcoming two-parter on ABC's Perfect Strangers, Mark Linn-Baker and Bronson Pinchot will be all wet again (above, in a scene from 1988, they do some plumbing).  During a visit from Larry's father (played by former Benson star James Noble), the kinetic cousins become trapped in the basement; a pipe bursts, slowly submerging them in water.  Shot at Lorimar, which is the old MGM studio, the episode features a set built inside the original tank where swimming movie star Esther Williams filmed her underwater close up scenes during the studio's glory days.
