Blind only in her eyes
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Meredith Baxter plays a pretty young blind woman married to Mills Watson; they're hillbillies in Appalachia. Doc Elliot shows up and diagnoses her with cataracts, and lets her know that by performing basic eye surgery, he can enable her to see again.

Everyone is thrilled except Watson, who, being a bearded, pot-bellied rube, is afraid that after she sees how homely he is, she won't want him anymore, telling Doc Elliot, "Let's face it, Mr. Doctor, I'm a toad!"

Elliot performs the operation, and the young woman is able to see just fine. She asks to be taken home to see her husband, calling out his name as she steps out of the car. At first no one comes outside, then Watson walks out the front door of the cabin, and the look on his face tells you he's prepared for the worst. But his worries were for nothing, as his wife doesn't care one bit what he looks like!

I saw this show over 30 years ago, and it still chokes me up to think about it.
