  • The deacon must litigate on behalf of the church against a shifty insurance company. At first, he is not interested in the case. But when a lovely young female assistant is added into the mix, he changes his mind. He becomes very smitten with her.moreless

    Truly hilarious. This episode contains the classic dress-the-Deacon routine. That one scene alone, where the other characters try to get him ready for court, really shows off Sherman Hemsley's considerable comedic skills. He uses his whole body as a tool for humor, flexibly extending from one person to the other as they attempt to change him from pajamas to business suit and tie. (In the story, he is too depressed to dress himself and go into work.) What also helps is how well the supporting cast plays off Hemsley. They know just exactly how to use him to get the laughs. That's what it makes the series such a great ensemble comedy.moreless
