Did You Know?

Goofs

There are only three Harper children shown in this movie: Eunice, Philip, and Ellen. Yet, in previous "Family" sketches (the basis of this movie)and in the series "Mama's Family", there are two other sons, Vinton (played by Ken Berry, who plays Philip in this movie)and Larry (played by Alan Alda). Brother Philip was played by Roddy McDowall in at least two of the original "Family" sketches. See more »

Quotes

Ed: You haven't changed one iota, Eunice. Your hair's different, it's nice, I like it.
Eunice: I had it fixed specially for the funeral. I don't like it.

Great little teleplay
27 November 2001 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

Sad but sweet little teleplay featuring the "Family" from the Carol Burnett Show. Act 1 tells about Eunice and Ed, Act 2 takes place after Ed has left and Eunice is stuck alone with Momma, and Act 3 deals with Eunice trying to deal with Momma's passing away. Very funny, but also very sad. I have only seen this once, on it's live broadcast in 1981. I hope that it finds it's way to video someday.
