Rose Nylund: [about Phil] So what if he was different? It's okay that you loved him.
Sophia Petrillo: [voice cracking] I did love him. He was my son, my little boy. But every time I saw him I wondered what I did, what I said, when was the day I did whatever I did to make him the way he was.
Angela Petrillo: [tenderly] What he was Sophia, was a good man.

Ebbtide's Revenge (#6.12)
20 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia's son and Dorothy's brother Phil dies from a heart attack. They go to the funeral where we also find out that Phil loved to wear dresses. Sophia and his wife Angela don't get along, Sophia has some issues with her and when they get home they try to figure out what it was.

Another good episode. They manage to make a funeral episode have some lighter moments, such as when the priest sees that feel is wearing a dress. But it stays emotional, whether it is when Dorothy is making the eulogy or when at the end Sophia tells how she was worried about his dressing and what she may have done. But Angela says that he was a good man and we see a great moment that brings tears to one's eyes
