She, being Jewish herself, took offense to the changes in the character. See more »
I can't wait to see what this fool tips me today.
This guy's tipped you before, Russ?
Mm-hmm. The guy orders a bowl of soup and leaves a hundred dollar tip. What's up with that?
[exchanges glances with Marie]
Your boyfriend's rich.
[nods her head]

This show had a lot going for it. Good actors and good writing. Every episode made me break out into laughter. For those reasons, I really can't understand how this show got cancelled. This was a show that was short lived and really didn't deserve it. At least reruns can be seen on USA.
