Yes he did, especially when he was showing off or if he had proven someone wrong.

LaWanda Page also played an sexualized old woman that thought she was hot stuff on Family Matters. That's something you don't want to see, though. Carl's reaction is funny, though.

LaWanda Page played the church lady who kept saying "Heeeaaaal". She also used the term "sucka" didn't she? Sol, do you have the original broadcast?

LaWanda Page was with all due respect, wonderful on Sanford & Son but was really terrible on everything else where she wasn't essentially Esther. On Diff'rent Strokes, her delivery was so insincere that when the twist comes at the end of the episode, suggesting she was going to fess up to her deception, you think she's lying again.

Lawanda Page was never an actress prior to Sanford and Son. As a matter of fact, she was almost cut from the cast due to not performing well. Reed Foxx was an old friend and lobbied for the producers to keep her on long enough for him to work with her to improve her performance. What followed was an iconic 70s sitcom character. She found what worked and milked it the rest of her career. I don't blame her one bit.

Aunt Ester is really the reason I like Sanford and Son. To me, she made the show.
