Quotes

Randi: It's an annoying fact of life, but husbands can often see their wives' flaws much more easily than we can see our own. My former husband could certainly see right through me and he'd help me see it to. Usually by striking me with a baseball bat. Then one day, he swung and missed and I stabbed him to death. So, looking at it now, I suppose he didn't know me quite as well as he thought. For example, he didn't know I had that sharp knife. But, here I am talking about myself when we should be ...

One serious, yet light hour of intense drama.
18 August 2001 | by (Napa, CA) – See all my reviews

This show is a far cry from others with similar themes. Sometimes I am shocked at the themes and other times I roll off the couch laughing at some of the hilarious dialogue. It blends humor along with touching and real-life stories. This is the best drama on television, for the time being. The cast is also great, but the story lines and plots are what make it such a good show. They are so unpredictable. I love this show!! :-)
