  • Outstanding episode played just for laughs

    Terrific example of Gimme a Break at its best. Played strictly for laughs, without the usual moralising that accompanied the show. It really is genuinely funny, and watch for the restaurant scene when Nell learns Addy is selling her car to Jackie. She really is hilarious.

    Sydney Goldsmith as the ditzy Jackie (sister of the equally ditzy Angie) - is a riot. She has some of the best lines in the episode.

    The Kanisky girls only briefly feature, which is a plus for me

    Very tight writing, some great physical comedy, and a fun story. I recommend this episode to both fans of the show and those only just getting acquainted with its charms.
