  • Jan receives a picture from her aunt and is afraid that she will end up looking like her. When they meet in person, she learns a valuable lesson about judging a book by its cover.moreless

    Everytime I see this episode, I wonder how Imogene Coco felt being cast as this creature so hideous that it would freak out Jan to resemble her. I mean, she didn't look bad or anything; perhaps she was a bit eccentric, but it was her choice to dress a particular way. Jan was always in plotlines where her neurotic tendencies came to the fore (wanting to be an only child, envious of Marcia's accomplishments, jealous that Clark Tyson dug Marcia). Sheesh. I wonder why the writers chose to give Eve this storylines all the time. I'm curious if they wrote for the actors.moreless
