Quotes

Sister Kate: April is the slowest, most conscientious driver in the world.
April: Isn't that good?
Sister Kate: Not when you're trying to get somewhere. When the speed limit's 25, she goes 24. When she drives by a hospital, she turns off the engine and coasts because the sign says Quiet. One time the light turned yellow and she actually stopped.
Todd: You're right, that *is* sick.
Sister Kate: The policeman that rear-ended us seemed to think so.

Great show!
30 December 1999 | by Carlotta-4See all my reviews

I used to watch this show when it was first on and loved it! Unfort., I haven't seen it since in syndication. It was quite funny and Stephanie Beecham is a wonderful actress. Her character as the nun was wonderful and each show ended on a good note/moral.
