> Description 
After the death or her husband Don, Alice Hyatt (Linda Lavin) is on her way to hollywood to become a singer, but her car breaks down in Phoenix with her son Tommy (Phillip McKeon). She has no money so she takes a job at Mel's Diner. Mel (Vic Tayback) is a loud, cheap man who pays very little. Alice's co-workers are the man hungry Florence Jean Castlebury nicknamed Flo (Polly Holliday), and the ditzy but lovable Vera Gorman (Beth Howland). After Flo leaves for a hostess job, she is replaced by Belle Dupree (Diane Ladd) another aspiring singer who only stays around for about a year because she gets her dream. She is replaced by ex-truck-driver, sarcastic Jolene (Celia Weston). Many interesting people were regular customers Henry (Marvin Kaplin) and Earl (Dave Madden (the partridge family) etc, In later seasons Vera got married to the lovable Elliot (Charles Levin). In the very last episode Mel sells the diner to a contractor, Vera is pregnant, Jolene opens a beauty salon and Alice finally gets her dream of being a singer. The show was around for 9 seasons and was a TV version of the oscar winning movie "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore".
