Episode Summary

It's a Hard Knock Life
Bitter recluse Nancy Waldron, who cares more about her cats than about people, ironically dies from being hit in the head by a cat statue. Othniel gives her a second chance to learn to like people by sending her back to the orphanage where she grew up dreaming about being adopted by the perfect mom, just like in her favorite movie. Instead she, or so she thinks, endured a heartless orphanage director, Miss Hannah, who forbade cats in the house.

While her guide Mr. Smith is taught a lesson in humility and something about himself Nancy, now the orphanage's matron Peggy, tries her best at getting her younger self adopted by the seemingly perfect woman, despite Hannah's stern warnings. But as Peggy learns the inner workings of the orphanage and the pressure Hannah is under, she soon sees that many things aren't the way they seem, or how she remembers them.moreless

      • (to Judge Othniel)
        Nancy: Wait a minute, I should automatically get into heaven for the rotten life I've had.

      • (to Mr. Smith regrading Nancy)
        Judge Othniel: Look, you take her back and show her the Light. I don't care how hard it is - that's your job. Keep your eye on the ball.

      • Peggy McIntyre: How does this work exactly? You skulk around here invisible giving me mundane pearls of wisdom?
        Mr. Smith: Actually, I take on human form once the committee upstairs decides on an identity. I'm hoping for a GTO with a rag top and some California girls inside. I'm the Big Kahuna type.

      • Hannah: Mr Oatmeal...
        Peggy: (smiling) Othniel. Othniel.
        Hannah: He said you were very good with people. Come on.
