Touched by an Angel

In the episode ‘Missing in Action’, George is an old army veteran from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, who thinks he has nothing left to live for. He has also been removed from six separate retirement homes. The angel Monica is assigned to show him the joy of living again.

To help him appreciate the joys of life, Monica transforms into elderly woman and befriends George in the nursing home. However, Monica is oblivious to the fact that George has developed strong feelings for her.
