Farrell, Jump and the Big Woman In The Dressing Room
31 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

Willona goes to work in a department store security two-way mirror room to make extra money for something for Penny (Janet Jackson) so she could have dancing shoes or dancing lessons, something like that.

Conchata Farrell is her supervisor, Gordon Jump (WKRP in Cincinnati) is the store manager.

What all takes place is very amusing.

From "Lenny, if he doesn't have it, there aren't any" who made several appearances on the show (thank goodness he never entered the dressing room) to the big woman trying to get a skirt on as Farrell and Janet Du'Bois (Willona) watch are all wonderful.

Even the JJ bit where he tries to tell Willona thru the two way mirror that Penny got what she needed so Willona doesn't have to do this job (as tho there was intense controversy in store security like this) and Farrell is the one watching as JJ opens his coat to show 'Willona' it is him, is very funny.

Willona, however, does have a touch of conscience with the 'college girl with torn underwear' and 'the nun with what she had under her habit was between her and the Lord'.

Finally, Willona bangs on the window to scare off an actual shoplifter and Farrell suddenly bursts in, aware of what Willona has done.

"So you were watching me all the time." Then Jump enters and says he wants to have a meeting with Farrell. He doesn't like something about the way she has been running the security department.

Then we hear the store president summon all three people to his office over the intercom. End with Jump, Farrell and Du'Bois looking shocked, very Twilight Zone.
