Episode 27
25 April 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Episode 27 begins with Dutch and Chester's escape from prison,winding up in the Tate basement.Burt offers Danny part ownership of his construction business,as both try to shave before the same mirror prior to Danny's wedding.Mary fears that her son will never call her once he's married,and gives examples of sons who neglect their mothers("Mrs.Kalish,poor soul...she hasn't taken a bath in two years,she's afraid he'll call,she'll be in the tub!") At the wedding,Elaine's Aunt Esther(Florence Halop)is surprised to see a black man(Benson)as part of the groom's family,and her father drinks a toast to the bride,completely cutting off Elaine from the family("she is a disgusting person,and nothing thrills me more than to be rid of her forever!") Jodie returns home after a date with Dennis,with a distraught Carol waiting to tell him she's going to have his baby("the rabbit died!")This is the final appearance of Gordon Jump as Chief of Police Tinkler,Sorrell Booke as Charles Lefkowitz,Elaine's father,and the always unbilled Tim Rossovich,whose bodyguard does show up at the wedding.
