  • Blanche's brother Clayton arrives in town to announce that he is getting married to his friend Doug. Blanche has trouble getting used to it. Meanwhile, Rose is up for Volunteer of the year award.

    This is another episode that endears so many gay fans to the Girls. The reaction that Blanche has is incredibly accurate, especially for the early 90's. You know she loves Clayton, but she just can't get used to him being gay "I don't mind that Clayton is a homosexual, I just wish he wouldn't date men"!
    Even as she stumbles, she eventually comes to terms and accepts Clayton and Doug.
    The other story on the show gives us vintage GG comedy. Sophia is selling dates with Dorothy in exchange for services for the banquet, while Rose gets carried away thinking she has won the award.
    My favorite line is from Dorothy. "You'll have to excuse my mother. She survived a slight stroke and to be frank, it's left her a total burden. One of my favorite episodes.
