Vivian's friend has died, but she does not want to go to the funeral. She has never been to a funeral before.
Did You Know?
This episode features Maude, Arthur and Vivian attending the viewing and funeral of a woman none of them could stand. The deceased was laid out at the McDonald Funeral Home and, at one point, Maude addresses the funeral director as "Ron." An actual Ronald McDonald Funeral Home has served Kane, Pennsylvania for decades. One of the Ronalds in the dynasty appeared along with numerous others who share the name in a tongue-in-cheek Taco Bell commercial that launched the Mexican restaurant's breakfast menu. Mr. McDonald once told a snickering reporter who was taking obituary information from him for the first time,"Go ahead, get it all out. Just remember we've been around a lot longer than that clown."

How could Vivian do such a thing?
Don't worry, Arthur. Hattie will give it back to Agnes. She's bound to run into her down there.
