  • A Clear indication to the fear of Aids in the early 90's

    Now i'm pretty young and it wasn't until i saw this episode that i realised how terrible it was for those who tested Positive. It honestly never occurred to me that they would have trouble getting insurance and Jobs it is pretty awful.

    'Aids isn't bad people's disease Rose, it isn't God punishing his people for their sins'

    At times Sophia may have seemed that she felt it was but from what I've heard Estelle Getty was anything but and a great activist for those with HIV Aids

    Fav Line:
    Dorothy 'Its like holding up a save the whales poster on a Japanese Trawler'
