  • "The Last Leaf": Mother Jefferson's Swan Song

    This Season Four episode of "The Jeffersons" is a heartfelt, touching episode & contains a milestone - it's the last episode to feature actress Zara Cully (Mother Olivia Jefferson). Cully died less than three months after this episode originally aired on CBS. Mother Jefferson's last line was "Tell George his mother will always have a room waiting for him". Zara Cully was featured in a tribute episode of sorts later that season in the four-part episode "George & Louise In A Bind" - a retrospective episode featuring clips of "The Jeffersons" & "All in the Family" (the sitcom from which "TJ" spun off from). Zara Cully died on February 28th, 1978 @ the age of 86. Ms. Cully.
