  • Dorothy's dancing is compromised by a small tumor in her foot.

    I didn't really find the story about Dorothy's operation funny. The only part I found funny was when the priest thought she was sleeping with Mr. Ferguson in his bed. However, it was touching when Dorothy realized that her surgery was pretty trivial compared to the woman who was sharing the room with her. It was quite beautiful when Dorothy stated she feels like ". . .a fool. A damn fool." I absolutely enjoyed the tap dancing story. I loved the first number they did in the living room and then when we learn that Blanche is afraid of crowds. Great episode!
