Episode cast overview:
Ralph Carter ...
Thelma Evans Anderson (as Bern Nadette Stanis)


J.J. creates and sells the character "Dyno-Woman" to a comic book publisher (modeled after Thelma). J.J. is getting his own "pad" too. Thelma announces she's pregnant, just in time too, for her husband Keith has learned he can play pro football again because his broken leg has completely mended. He'll also be signing with a major NFL team. Neighbor Wilona gets a new higher paying job that will allow her and daughter Penny to move from the projects. Michael,already in college,decides to move out and live on campus and continue his education. Thelma and Keith will be living in a great apartment in North Chicago but insist that Florida come live with them to help care for Thelma's baby. In great co-incidence,it turns out the building they're moving into is the exact same one Wilona and Penny will also live in! Florida & Wilona laugh and cheer at this wonderful news and end the series with a hug. Written by happipuppi13

*Spoiler* A fitting ending
12 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though it was totally unrealistic ending with everyone having great fortune at one time, you couldn't help but feel good. Everyone was getting out of the ghetto. JJ landed a comic book deal. Thelma's husband became a running back with the Chicago Bears. Willona became the head buyer for the boutique. A lot of the shows in this series were depressing and hit home with social issues, but this show was aptly named and will always stay in my memories as one of the best endings to a great sitcom series. I always appreciated how the family was always jabbing each other with great insults, but when the going got tough, they always stuck together.
