Stung by the critique, Woody decides to quit the show. Lee Bradken, the director, convinces Woody that all he needs to do to have a better performance is get to his true emotional feelings by writing them down on paper.

Quotes

[Woody is appearing in a stage production of Arsenic and Old Lace]
Cliff Clavin: All I can tell you, Woody, is that Ma loved the play. There's something about the idea of sweet old ladies being cold blooded murderers just seemed to tickle her funny bone. All the way home, she just laughed and laughed. As a matter of fact, I woke up at three A.M., and there she was sitting in my room in a rocking chair, rocking back and forth, staring at me and making this low gutteral chuckle. Boy, does she love the theater.

The Lowest Rated Episode?
21 March 2018 | by mthibeault-50021See all my reviews

It for sure isn't the best episode but it's still good. It's still funny. 7/10. If this is the worst episode that goes as evidence of how great this show is.
