Did You Know?


Guest star Diana Muldaur plays a nun here, and consequently is frequently addressed by David as "Sister." Previously, in The Incredible Hulk: Homecoming (1979), she appeared as Helen Banner, David's sister. See more »


Patrero: What is so terrible about what I do? I help unfortunates escape poverty and come to this land of plenty, oh yes, just like Moses leading the people across the desert.
Sister Anita: Moses did not charge 5000 dollars a head to his own people.
Patrero: But it's not an unreasonable price for freedom and a new life.
Sister Anita: Get out!

The Church
22 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

David Banner(Bill Bixby) is working as a handyman at a church in a poor village run by Sister Anita(Diana Muldaur, who had previously played David's actual sister Helen!) and Sister Mary Catherine(played by Edie McClurg). Trouble starts when a wounded boy seeks sanctuary in the church from the local crime lord who is after him, and tries to coerce out to finish the job. The Sisters instead persuade David to impersonate a priest in order to stall the crooks while they smuggle the boy to a nearby hospital, which does work for a while, until the Hulk is forced into action. Decent enough episode is not among the more memorable but does have fine support from the guest cast, though at least Muldaur was covered up in her nun's habit(that way David won't wonder why his sister Helen is now a nun!)
