  • All of the story lines deal with being forgiven. It is another well written episode. It is always not easy to forgive, but everyone yearns to be forgiven.

    Maxine and Jared...they are a great couple. Jared is a true gentleman. The dancing scene at the beginning of the show is a nice touch.



    On the other hand, Maxine has to forgive Charles for his unfair judgement of Maxine's goals with Jared. It is hard to forgive Charles...he does not demonstrate remorse and keeps on insulting the Gray family. The scene at the dining room table is great.



    Donna and Vincent have another wonderful scene. Donna gives Vincent a chance to concentrate on his writing. She needs to be needed (by an adult) and to trust a man. He needs to focus on his writing and not spend his time on news articles.



    Amy has to face the fact that Lauren has more female role models in her life than Amy and Maxine. She also realizes that Lauren is not a singer nor has good sense about selecting a song to perform in front of her friends.



    The serious story line in this episode is about a teenager who has homosexual tendencies. It is handled well.



    This is another fine episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Charles: Well Maxine, if this is any indication of how good you cook all the time its no wonder your children dont want to leave home. (Amy, Peter, Maxine and Vincent look offended)
      Jared: This is nothing, you should see her dance.
      Maxine: (giggles)

    • Charles: Maxine, I have really wanted to tell you how much I don't appreciate you telling my father what I told you in private conversation.
      Maxine: Charles, if you do not want me to tell your father about the slimy underhanded things you do, the best plan of action would be to not do them.

    • Donna: Are you a man or an artist?
      Vincent: I kinda was going for both.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The bandleader and bass player was Peter Himmelman, who writes the music for the show, accompanied by Jeff Lingle, the show's music editor, on sax. He talks about his experience in front of the camera here.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Charles mentions to Maxine that his father has made him an offer that he cannot refuse. This is an allusion to a famous line from the movie, "The Godfather." In the movie, the 'offer' is more of a threat whereas in this episode the 'offer' is a sweet deal.

    • The allusion in the title of this episode is to the movie, "The Unforgiven." It was made in 1960 and starred Burt Lancaster and was remade in 1992 starred Clint Eastwood.
