  • Showed that the character of Sophia had more depth than just one-liners.

    I enjoyed watching Sophia and her friend Alvin enjoy their sitting on the boardwalk. It was very sad when we find out that he has Alzheimers. I felt so bad for Sophia because it proved she was not prejudice and she enjoyed the company. It was quite a beautiful episode. The part with Rose snatching the teddy bear from the rude girl was priceless. I wish Rose would've punched her too though.
