  • Aunt Tinkie boards a plane from Schenectady to NYC and when it's announced that the plane has crashed, Maude's guilty conscience (and sudden cash influx) drives her in every direction imaginable.

    I love this episode and am surprised it hasn't received higher ratings from other reviewers. The part where Maude is told that a sole survivor has been spotted among the wreckage of the airplane is freaking hilarious. Also, her spot on reaction to Carol's pronouncement that she, too, hates Tinky is a brilliant example of comedic timing. Everyone shines in this episode and the conclusion delivers the goods. Even the name of the airline - Scooby Doo - is a hoot. Bea Arthur is truly one of the geniuses of comedy. Really funny stuff here, folks.
