His Sorry Repeats Itself

Maybe you were one of the four million people who watched ''All of Us'' on UPN this past Monday. OK. Maybe not. But that means you missed an episode called ''Divorce Means Never Having to Say I'm Sorry.''

There must be a lot of sorry people on TV. (Take that however you want.) TV writers use ep titles to immortalize this simple request for forgiveness. Of the 40 or so ep titles containing "sorry," here are a few of the more interesting ones:

  • Being Fired Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry (''Almost Perfect,'' 3/11/1996)
  • I'm Sorry I Told You My Wife Was Dead (''Coach,'' 4/26/1989)
  • Love Is Having to Say You're Sorry (''9 to 5'')
  • Love Means Constantly Having to Say You're Sorry (''Doogie Howser, M.D.,'' 1/27/1993)
  • Somebody Has to Say They're Sorry (''Rhoda,'' 1/23/1977)
  • Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word (''Dave’s World,'' 12/5/1994)
  • Suing Means Saying You're Sorry (''Room 222,'' 2/4/1972)
  • Yule Be Sorry (''Joe’s Life,'' 12/15/1993)

    That is one painful message. I always believe that leaving somebehind means that you get over the things that caused you the pain. A person will have a hard time moving on provided the situation. To calm the sea, better say "I am sorry".
