I remember this, 17 October 2003
Author: joserus from Los Angeles

I do remember this TV movie just a little. Commenting on the other reviewer, on thing that I do remember about this show is the joke about the hors d'oeuvres. Mary Jane's character had made 50 deviled eggs that she was setting out for the president who was coming over. Vivian Vance went up to the tray and ate one as Mary Jane panicked and told her that each one represented a state and she had just eaten Kansas. Vivian Vance replied "for heaven's sake, I just ate my home state!" I didn't really get most of the jokes being just ten years old, but I do remember my grandmother laughing a lot.
