  • The reverend finds himself in a complicated situation with a widow who considers donating $10,000 to the church's new daycare. It is obvious to Thelma that the widow has amorous intentions towards Reuben, but the deacon insists it's just church business.moreless

    This episode does not contain any physical comedy, but the situation of a reverend getting drawn into a lonely widow's trap has plenty of humor. What makes it funnier is how the writers have played it off Thelma's insecurities. This gives Anna Maria Horsford some good dialogue where her character confronts the reverend about a lipstick-stained handkerchief. The script also provides Clifton Davis with some moments to show the more conflicted nature of his character, as he gets caught up in the deacon's plan to get money from the widow, but also must remain true to his calling as a decent and morally upstanding minister.moreless
