EDIT
A Letter to the President
AIRED:
When Mary writes a letter to the President about the pothole that is on her street that no one has seemed to fill in 3 months, the secret service starts snooping around 227 and gets the residents nervous. Then they find out that the President was actually praising her for her consideration of her neighborhood. He makes plans to come to the street and refill the pothole with Lester. When the Jenkins' catch the city filling in the pothole, they stop them and tell them that the President and Lester will be doing that later. The President cancels his appearance because of an emergency meeting but calls and commends Mary and also flies over the street in his helicopter.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Rose, Pearl and Sandra become angry that Mary mentioned them in her letter to the President, but didn't they hopefully ask Mary if she mentioned them at the beginning of the episode?

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Sandra: You're all over-reacting--this is nothing.
        Pearl: Well, see what you say when a bunch of G-men swoop down on you.
        Sandra: Why would they do that? Other than the obvious?

      • Rose: Your name was in the letter, too.
        Sandra: Is that right, Mary?
        Mary: Well, you were all complaining; it made perfect sense to me--
        Sandra: To implicate us all in this wretched mess? I can't go to jail, Mary--I look terrible in stripes!

      • Sandra: You asked the President to fill our pothole? Well quick, Mary, call George Bush--my living room window is stuck.
