Quotes

[Neville, Violet and Eugene are watching TV when Sister Kate enters the room]
Sister Kate: Neville, Violet, time for bed.
Neville Williams: Hey, how come the black folks have to go to bed first around here?
Sister Kate: It's not because you're black. It's because you're the most annoying. And you're also the youngest, now go.
[Neville and Violet leave. Kate turns back to the couch]
Sister Kate: You too, Eugene.
Eugene Colodner: I'm not the youngest.
Sister Kate: No, but you're every bit as annoying.

Great show!
30 December 1999 | by Carlotta-4See all my reviews

I used to watch this show when it was first on and loved it! Unfort., I haven't seen it since in syndication. It was quite funny and Stephanie Beecham is a wonderful actress. Her character as the nun was wonderful and each show ended on a good note/moral.
