My favorite episode is "The Candidate", when Julia runs for office. She has an amazing monologue that I actually performed at a local film industry event.

I do not think everyone in America is ignorant! Far from it! But we are today, probably, the most uneducated, under read, and illiterate nation in the western hemisphere. Which makes it all the more puzzling to me why the biggest question on your small mind is whether or not little Johnny is gonna recite the Pledge of Allegiance every morning!

I'll tell you something else, Mr. Brickett. I have had it up to here with you and your phony issues and your Yankee Doodle yakking! If you like reciting the Pledge of Allegiance everyday then I think you should do it! In the car! In the shower! Wherever the mood strikes you! But don't try to tell me when or where I have to say or do or salute anything, because I am an American too, and that is what being an American is all about!

And another thing, I am sick and tired of being made to feel that if I am not a member of a little family with 2.4 children who goes just to Jerry Falwell's church and puts their hands over their hearts every morning that I am unreligious, unpatriotic, and un-American! Because I've got news for you, Mr. Brickett. All liberals are not kooks, anymore than all conservatives are fascists! And the last time I checked, God was neither a Democratic nor a Republican!

And just for your information, yes I am a liberal, but I am also a Christian. And I get down on my knees and pray everyday - on my own turf - on my own time. One of the things that I pray for, Mr. Brickett is that people with power will get good sense, and that people with good sense will get power... and that the rest of us will be blessed with the patience and the strength to survive the people like you in the meantime!

Mine too. I also off the top of my head love the ep. where Julia is invited to the country club Suzanne want to be a part of but the club doesnt allow Jews or "others". The other one I love is Suzanne's high school reunion & how she deals with her weight gain issue.

Missing Meshach Taylor, and hoping that his "unfortunate incarceration" in this world has been exchanged for one of peace.

That's exactly what I thought.

One of my favorite shows, by a country mile. RIP Meshach. Le sigh.

I have too many favorite lines to count. I often try to channel Julia (although I achieve Suzanne).

But one of my all-times -- I guffaw every time -- is from the episode where Julia and Suzanne's nieces come to visit, and they are uncomfortably similar to Julia and Suzanne.

The line (paraphrasing a bit, since I'm not looking up the exact verbiage):

"I want to get some blush-on with some little sparklies in it."

"We are not stopping. If you want red cheeks, why don't I just slap them for you?"

Roots and Wings
The quote from the pillow given to Suzanne by her grandmother:
Dear Little One,
I wish two things;
To give you roots.
To give you wings.

Julia confronts, and then comforts, a very tearful Suzanne who doesn't want to give up Li Sing.
SUZANNE: Well I sure made a mess of things this time, didn't I?
JULIA: Not yet. In a few more hours they'll be talking kidnapping.
SUZANNE: I wish I'd never met her. She thinks I'm wonderful. She even loves my cooking.
JULIA: You don't cook.
SUZANNE: Well, I know that, but she doesn't! Li Sing's the first person who's ever loved me just for me.
JULIA: She's not the first. She's the third.
SUZANNE: What? you mean my ex-husbands?
JULIA: No, silly. Mother and me. We love you just for you.
SUZANNE: Yeah, but you don't think I can do anything.
JULIA: That's not true. I just said I didn't think you were cut out to be a mother.
SUZANNE: You mean unlike the four billion other women on Earth? Thanks a lot.
JULIA: But you do something nobody else can do.
SUZANNE: What?
JULIA: I don't know what it is.....exactly.....that you do. I just know nobody else is doing it, or can do it, like you do. You giving away your pillow?
SUZANNE: Yeah. I wanted Li Sing to have it.
JULIA: I think Grandma would like that. I remember when she made these for us. Roots and Wings. We sure got our share didn't we? Suzanne, I'm going to say something pretty harsh, but I'm saying it because I love you. Just once in your life, don't put yourself first.
SUZANNE: I'm not, Julia. I'm thinking of Li Sing.
JULIA: No, you're not. You're not thinking at all. You know, in your heart, that she's better off with this couple. If you love her, like you say you do, give her wings.
SUZANNE: I just didn't expect to fall in love with her. I know, you're right. I know. Ok, I'll do it.
Julia takes Suzanne's hand and starts to cry herself.
JULIA: I'm so happy for you.
SUZANNE: Why?
JULIA: Because, now. . . you know what it feels like to be a mother.

Oh Suzannah pt 1
