Maude's Pregnancy
3 May 2019 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Maude finds out she is pregnant and is unsure about whether she will have the baby.

The beginning of the most controversial sitcom episode of the 1970s. It is also significant for the first appearance of Rue Mclanahan as Maude's friend Vivian. Maude breaks the news to Walter while he is eating a chicken leg and he nearly chokes for the funniest moment. He tells Maude whatever she decides is OK with him and he also says he will get a vasectomy. This sets up Part II of the story, the first time for a multi part episode in the series.
