Default The saddest, or most poignant ep in the series

Calling all Hazel addicts:

For those who watch the show closely, what was the saddest or most touching ep for you? For me it was "Champagne Tony" ep #115 from S4.

Tony Lema, the professional golfer guests. What made it sad for me, was that about a year and a half later, Tony and his wife were tragically killed in a plane crash on the way to a tournament. He was only 32 and seemed destined, by his record, to becoming one of the best golfers ever--right up there with Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

From all the clips I've seen, and from the ep, he was supposed to be a real charmer. His personal touch was to celebrate victories with Champagne with the press (most victors were celebrating with beer) - hence the nickname "Champagne Tony".

Fellow Hazel fans: what's your ep?

I consider Champagne Tony sort of a special episode too, not because the episode is sad, it's not a sad episode, but sad looking at it now in retrospect knowing what was going to happen to Mr. Lema.

Hazel isn't really a laugh out loud type of sitcom, the episodes are funny but there are serious dramatic moments as well. I can't point out one episode in particular that's saddest, just that there are serious moments thruout the series.

I think several episodes from season one were poignant or more dramatic than later ones. One that comes to mind is the ep where Hazel throws a slumber party for the girl next door. Another is one where Hazel attends a "fat farm" and shows up some of the snobbish women there.

A later (color) episode is where Hazel's old flame comes back to court her and they end up not getting together.

Another one was the episode where Rosemary Decamp plays a cousin of Hazels. Rosemarys secretary a snobby woman didn't want Hazel at the
Rosemary's wedding.

I remember that ep, and Hael's cousin rips the secretary to pieces; as she rightly should have.

I like the one where Mr. B. finds that he cannot "perform" and Hazel solves the problem by teaching Miss Missy a few tricks from her repertoire d'amor. Special episode, sensitively portrayed.

I think these 3 are the best choices.

Hazel to me is a very fun sitcom and also a sitcom that I just recently come to watching. One episode that was not sad really, but had a lot of meaning was when Hazel entered a contest on being the best housekeeper and the prize was to go on a vacation. If she won she was going to take Bobby. Well the contest ended in a tie and the two contestants had to bake a cake to settle the tie. Hazel heard that the lady she was up against just had a family misfortune and her son was really wanting this trip to make him happy. So she deliberately turned the oven off mid contest making her cake drop and lost the contest. Mr. B. came through though as he had the entire family and Hazel go on the vacation. Great episode.

When Hazel gave credit to Deirdre for the success of a fashion show (when Hazel stole the show), for once, Deirdre ditched the snob pretensions, and was nice to Hazel. It was nice to see that Deirdre (briefly) had a human side.

Another good one is Hazel wiping ice cream off of "Sport", not realizing Harold is growing away from her. Happy ending needed: Harold walks home with the girl, and she starts knocking sports, and Harold runs back to Hazel--she has him for a little longer. Nice episode.

Probably the Thanksgiving show from the first year. The scene where Hazel realizes that Mrs. Baxter (George's mother that is) wants to feel useful and Hazel gets her to help in the kitchen is very touching. Another scene that is touching is when George's sister (not Deirdre, her name escapes me at that moment) and her husband are having problems. Mrs. Baxter tells her daughter that her father (Mrs. Baxter's late husband that is) constantly told a certain story. Her daughter says, "You laughed every time though." Mrs. Baxter states simply "I loved him".

Another poignant episode is when Deirdre and her family relocate from Boston, in season 1. Deirdre forbids her daughter from seeing Hazel's nephew, Eddie. This causes Nancy, the daughter, to continue seeing him, and to confide in Hazel, rather than her mother. Hazel engineers the eventual, tearful reunion of mother and daughter.

Ironically, in season 2, Hazel also engineers it so that Eddie and Nancy postpone their wedding. I don't think Eddie and Nancy ever appear again in the series, after that episode.

I remember talking about this some years ago elsewhere on this Hazel board, somewhere. But without looking that conversation up:
I suppose if I only had one sad moment to pick it would be when Hazel was not wanted to join in on the pajama party with the hot girls. I'd have been disappointed too, but not for the reasons Hazel had. This scene, though, makes me sad each time I see it. Time has passed Hazel by and she can't get it back. That's a sad realization for all of us past a certain age.

Another great scene in the episode about Hazel's old flame (I think his name was Gus) coming back and the way George was concerned about Hazel getting her feelings hurt; he asked the obvious question, if Gus really did care about her, where was he all of these years. I just think it was really sweet about George being so protective of Hazel.

Thumbs up Hmm, yes, that's right, well, still too soon for me

Yes, Hazel really did have fine examples of really good writing, realistic, not jokey, but seeming real human beings talking. Then again for me after 30 years of constant watching I really got annoyed at Hazel not listening and subverting Mr. B's orders, I had to stop watching I'd get so steamed. I'm giving Hazel a year or 2 break before I step back in the waters, I talked about this in another thread. But you all have reminded me the really good points of the Hazel series and why I liked it from the beginning. Thanks for that.
