  • Thelma feels useless compared to Rev. Crawford's wife. She decides to get more involved with church ministry to impress Reuben and be the kind of wife she thinks he will need.moreless

    In this episode, we have Sherman Hemsley in two get-ups. First, he's dressed as a plumber trying to fix the church's pipes. Then, he wears a pink dress, hat and ladies gloves in an attempt to help Thelma make clothes. But it is not just Hemsley's episode. Anna Maria Horsford gets a great scene where Thelma tries to help Reuben counsel a recent widow, only to cause even more grief and suffering. Finally, there's a moment where the grass outside the church is more than a bit soggy because of the plumbing. As Reuben delivers a speech at an Interfaith gathering, the ground begins to give way and they all sink.moreless
