One of my favourite Sophia moments happened in this episode. S: I'd give to all my children (kidney) except Phil
D: Why not Phil?
S: Because he never calls and he never writes, the only time i hear from him is at Christmas when he sends me a cheddar cheese nativity scene...I'm catholic, I can't spread a wiseman on a ritz cracker'
The studio audience erupted and so did I. That line highlights the shows originality, to create humor in places we as an audience aren't accustomed.
We also enjoy a very strong dramatic performance from Rue, who is torn between giving the sister she despises a kidney, or letting her die. A wonderful plot that brings out the best and worst in these characters
