Quotes

Blanche Devereaux: He looks very peaceful and natural.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak: Yeah... as natural as a man can look wearing a black teddy.
Rose Nylund: It's a beautiful teddy... I think more men should be buried in teddies.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak: I've just gotta remember that it's not the clothes that make the man, it's the man that makes the clothes oh God he looks like he died in a Benny Hill sketch!

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
