  • Georgia Engel at her best

    This had to be the episode the guaranteed Georgia Engel a long-term contract with MTM productions. Her work here is absolutely superb. Her scene with Harper and Moore when they confront her about Ted's mistreatment is stunning. Her description of herself is simultaneously heartbreaking and hysterical. Knight matches her perfectly in their scenes as well. This is the episode to watch if you want to see what it is the producers saw in Georgia Engel and why she was brought on as a regular. Harper, as usual is overplaying a few moments, but Engel's subtlety more than overcompensates for that.
