    In the previous episode, Thelma nursed her father back to health when he had the flu. In this episode, she gets to play Florence Nightingale again taking care of Reuben when he comes down with the measles. Some of the scenes are a bit predictable: namely, that he takes advantage of her constant doting and runs her ragged in the process of providing care for him. But Anna Maria Horsford and Clifton Davis do a nice job with these scenes, and it's fun to watch. Meanwhile, Sherman Hemsley has some good moments to play when the deacon gets rid of a substitute man of the cloth (Rev. Crawford) and decides to lead the congregation as its interim minister. Inga the housekeeper (played by Elsa Raven) goes to the church to become a member and learns about the way its baptisms are conducted. This leads to a scene over at the daycare where Ernie shows her in a kiddie pool how he dunks the newly baptized. Of course, she pulls him into the water and he gets soaking wet.moreless
