I detest those last two episodes. I've always found Leslie Nelson annoying...I just hated the way it ended...would Dorothy have been so desperate to marry someone she just met?

Well they had to have a reason for her to leave, because the other three were moving on to The Golden Palace. Maybe she should have remarried Stan, instead.

It's not the idea of Dorothy marrying that I hate...it's Leslie Nelson...I heard he was very rude on set...I was never a fan of his.

I have thought marrying Stan would have made for a better ending. The marriage to Leslie Nielsen seemed so rushed and there was no chemistry. I suppose Jerry Orbach might have been a better choice too; his character would have had time to realize he was in love and not just afraid of being alone.

They tried that once where she planned to marry Stan and he wanted her to sign an prenuptial agreement which ruined things between them and probably didn't' want to tread on familiar ground. As for Alex Rocco/Jerry Orbach "Glen O'Brian" character I agree that would have been a bit more believable than her marrying Leslie Nielsen's character which all seemed rather rushed like you said.

No I watch the finale. So many funny scenes!
I appreciate the real love and tears of the girs at the end. And after seeing it countless times that still moves me. That's pretty special for a sitcom.
I also always have to watch Dorothy look straight into the camera when she goes through the door for the last time, as if saying goodbye to the viewers as well.

Yes, I usually avoid the episode. Recently I caught the last few minutes and they kept having their group hugs.... gulp. Breaks my heart every time.

Home Again, Rose was a lot like a series finale in itself. I liked the way it ended with all of them hugging and staying together at the house.

As for Dorothy re-marrying Stan, he didn't change. He was always the same way. Had he changed and been nice and smartened up, it would have made a perfect ending. But Home Again, Rose was a good way to end the series.

There had to be a final storyline about Dorothy leaving because they wished to continue in another series, without her.

I wanted it to end.

I always wanted Stan to "clean his act up" and him and Dorothy get back together and get married in the last eposide.

I loved that the writers made it Dorothy who got married to a gorgeous older man in the end. After all the insults she endured over the years implying she was unattractive to men, she deserved it!
