It is too bad this series only lasted 13 episodes because it was of the funniest, and smartest things to come around in 1986. I will never forget the episode when Ellen Burstyn's character has some of her graduate students over at the house, working on a project in her office/library. Elaine Stritch is out in the main living area, making some noises, talking loudly. Ellen peeks out of her "classroom" and says "Mother, can you please hold down the noise, I am trying to teach class." To which, the wonderful Elaine Stritch (Sydney) replies with complete dead-pan - "Darling, you cannot teach class! You either have it or you don't." I absolutely fell over laughing at that line, and for all these years, I've often repeated it, because that is a grain of truth which transcends every decade!
