  • A widower asks for the church's help in selecting his next wife. Rev. Gregory thinks that goes beyond the parameters of his ministry. But when the deacon plays matchmaker anyway-- and it includes Thelma, the reverend has no choice but to get involved.moreless

    This episode does not have much physical comedy, but it does provide us with some great humor about arranged marriages. Lincoln Kilpatrick provides an interesting contrast to Clifton Davis' reverend as a widower who wants to marry Thelma. Of course, Thelma does not marry Kilpatrick's character, but it does bring the relationship between her and Reuben to another level (they are now 'engaged to be engaged.') Thrown into the mix are the Hetebrink sisters, Cassietta and Amelia, who are both angling for a proposal of their own. In fact, this episode features some really good moments for Barbara Montgomery and Roz Ryan as the sisters. In one scene, they wear the same dress, then they sabotage each other's homemaking skills. By the end of the episode, they have patched up their differences.moreless
