Nellie and Nancy
27 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always love this episode where Nellie returns for a visit with her family. It's interesting seeing both Nellie and Nancy together. It's also easy to see that Nancy is a lot worse than Nellie ever was! I've said it before, so I won't rehash, but I just think Nancy has evilness whereas Nellie had...well...bad child-rearing!

Nellie goes around and rehashes old times with all her friends. She's so happy so see everyone and is so sweet, but no matter how sweet she is, Nancy hates her and nothing will ever change her.

I tried...I really did...to feel sorry for Nancy at the party, but I couldn't! Nancy is a spoiled little rich girl who needs spankings from her mother and a hard lesson in life. Though she was happy when her sister and father found her, I don't think she really learned anything from it.

This will be the last time we see Nellie.
