  • Foxx's Most Powerful Performance -

    9.7
    I would have to put this one at #3 on my list of favorite episodes, if for no other reason than Redd Foxx's extraordinary performance. Laugh-wise, he gets off some good zingers, in this one – Particularly: "Bubba… Get the hell outta here!" and when he tells Esther that Lamont is "Up there in Las Vegas, playing that dice game that they named after your face.". And, his come-back to Donna's Mother, towards the end of the episode – "If I'm a snake and weasel, then you're a… Wonderful woman, my dear!", is perfect comic timing if ever there was any. But it's not Foxx's comic performance that puts this one in my Top 3… It's his dramatic performance. His lovely and touching soliloquy, where he asks Elizabeth's permission to marry Donna, is absolutely terrific. I've seen it countless times, and it never fails to tug at my heart-strings, and put a little 'choke' in my throat. It's a powerful dramatic performance that one normally would not expect from an Actor like Foxx. All-in-all, this is a very well-done episode. Writers Turteltaub and Orenstein put together an excellent script, James Sheldon's direction is right on par, and this one deserves to be near the top of the stack.moreless
