Meredith Baxter Birney was moonlighting in television movies while she was starring as Elyse Keaton in the hit network series, "Family Ties." In this movie, she plays a retarded adult who manages to have a normal life despite the difficulties that she would face. She gets a boyfriend and library card. Her sister played by Lee Garlington dies and nobody bothers to tell her. She replies "What are they afraid that I'm going to jump on the coffin." I remember that phrase or something like that clearly. Television like this offered opportunities for Baxter and others to showcase their acting talents and allowing them to grow. They don't make television movies on network anymore but it was nice while it lasted.
