Since We're On the Topic

This exact conversation went down any time the two sides of my family got together. Replace Maude with my mother's cousin Bonna and my dad's brother Chester, and you'd see the same thing. George McGovern was a favorite topic too. I can still hear Chester braying at Bonna: "He's a losah, Bonna. That Red Senator is nuthin' but a big losah!"

I don't remember the first time I saw this episode but I never forgot Maude's "you're fat" response. Her delivery is classic. I've used this response a number of times throughout the years when, you know, I just didn't know what else to say to someone who pissed me off.

great clip! did you purposely post it on the anniversary of nixon's pardon? - or a cosmic coincidence! (archie's defense of 'nixon' unfortunately is way too similiar to my own father's! yikes!!) thanks for the bit of time travel!

Skype - With several members of my family, that line is a good standby.

Dave - Stifle yourself.

Gary - Maude/Bea was best with an adversary like Archie

JDZS - Evah and for-evah!

Kimy - That's one anniversary I seem to overlook. Perhaps it's a fitting tribute. By the way, hello and welcome. Just checked your blog and it's great.
