Reverend Jim Ignatowski: Well, isn't this great, we've all learned something. Tony can't choose who his sister's gonna fall for, Monica can't choose who she's gonna fall for, and I think that I've learned the greatest lesson of all. I love being lifted.

Ignatowski finds love??
27 August 2008 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

Julie Kavner who has become most famous as the voice of Marge Simpson of "The Simpsons" is the guest star as Tony's sister, Monica Banta Douglas. She is just moving back to New York from out west where she played flute with a symphony, and Tony wants to give her a good greeting. He asks Alex to take her out to lunch and hope they hit it off.

In the funny opening scene Monica meets Louie and knows who he is just from Tony's description. Then she runs across Latka, and tells Louie "Don't go away too soon." But then she runs into Jim and actually finds him charming.

Monica's lunch date with Alex is OK, but he just isn't her type. But she and Jim find that they both have a love for music and agree to go to the symphony together. But neither of them tell anyone at the garage. After a few weeks Tony drops in on Monica and finds Jim there, and when it is revealed that Jim and his have been dating he flips out in a very funny scene, holding Jim by the back of the pants and the back of his collar, suspended above the floor, not quite sure what to do with him.
