What's funny about that scene is that it reveals what's just below the surface of just about everyone, if they don't get what they want (See also, Madison protests).

A very good sport about it. RIP, Frances.

Can't recall ever having seen her and I'm pretty good with character actors and actresses.

OTOH, I saw where Mary Fickett, who did a lot of movies and TV in the 50s, also died over the weekend - her I remember.

I hope both of them had good lives.

Wow! She was in three David Lynch movies.

"No immediate family members survive." That makes me sad.

Does this mean the Carol Herman reign of terror is over?

I play that every time my mother in law visits. She has no idea what it means or what show it's from.

I can see the 'old bag's' reaction down in Del Boca Vista when she realizes that it was that 'very bad man' Jerry Seinfeld that took her marble rye. A very bad day for Morty Seinfeld indeed.

Funny show.

Eh, we haven't heard the last of her. She'll almost certainly make at least one more appearance on election day next year.

The "Old Bag" recognizes Jerry @ Del Boca Vista in a later episode. It costs his dad an election!

ndspinelli said...

Sorry, Don't Tread..I'm late. May God comfort her friends and family. I pray for Ann Laurie Gaylor also just because I know she hates it! Will God forgive me for positive prayers albeit motivated by spite? We Catholics wonder about shit like this.

I remember her in the Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet roles (now that I've been reminded). RIP

All of this nostalgia me thirsty for a warm cup of milk.

Not to mention she testified against Jerry at the trial in the finale. I suspect that having a little old lady testify about how the least unlikeable (IMO) of the four resorted to mugging an old woman for a loaf of bread probably put them over the top.
