Storyline

Mike, Gloria and Archie are sick and Edith is running herself into a frazzle trying to keep up with their needs. She enlists the help of her cousin Maude Finley whom Archie can't stand because she is an outspoken bleeding heart liberal. Upon her arrival, the two get into a huge fight over Franklin Roosevelt, whom Archie hated and Maude adored. As the argument comes to a close, Edith reveals that she's sick and that Maude will stick around to take care of her. The next day, Archie is dismayed by the fact that Maude is staying because now she is sick too. Written by Jerry Roberts <armchair-cinema@hotmail.com>

Maudey's Here!
29 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Perhaps only outdone by Marla Gibbs mere two or three lines spoken at the end of an episode of The Jeffersons, this seemingly mere episode introduced one of the most memorable TV characters of the 70s; and then there's Maude.

From the moment Archie opens the door, the audience gasps at the appearance of that stern-faced woman standing there.

What an interesting concept to think if the show Maude had never come about. This would be all we would see of cousin Maude, perhaps she would have another guest appearance or two, but the character was so phenomenally defined in this one appearance alone.

Arthur and O'Conner played it off as tho they had a bad history for real and couldn't stand one another.

Mike and Gloria were peculiarly, but predictably, shuffled off to the sidelines. There was no need for Mike to say peep to Archie tho, as Maude was doing it all brilliantly.

The final line is truly a memorable one, a brilliant introduction.

Right on, Maude.
