Oh wow... (I wanted to put in full caps but IMDb would not let me)
11 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

chances are no one will ever read this review, but I needed to write this one anyway.

I just finished watching this episode on Netflix, and I bawled at the end.

The woman whole play's Mae Hackett was incredible. This episode pushed the limits of drama in a comedy sitcom. The acting was so real, and so intense.

And the writing in this episode was superb, and as usual for Wings, it was a great mixtures of dry subtleties and perfect slapstick.

They don't make heartfelt sitcom moment's like this anymore....
