    Does anyone think Alice got dumber as the show went on, or was she always as dumb as she is in the last few episodes?

    Was Alice abused or molested by her father? I remember that she mentioned him very often. Were they giving hints that he did bad things to her when she was little?

    I dont think that Alice's dad did stuff to her ... i think that he was just a bit weird.
    I remember an episode where Alice brought her piggy bank to Geraldine and told her that her father said one day she'd be able to buy a castle with the money that was in there, when it was full of buttons, and other things that her father had put in there.

    Exactly.
    This was a sitcom.

    Alice was just delightfully kooky and not very bright. lol
    (maybe a little inbred as well?!)

    Morbid much! This is a comedy show, I doubt that hints of molestation would be written into a script. I just think you're reading a little bit far into it.
