nominated for the Catholic Woman of the Year, her main obstacles are
her high school nemesis Agnes Dunn (Sharon Lawrence) and her family,
which includes a disaffected husband (Michael McGrady), a son (Jason
Ritter) whose marriage is on the rocks, and a daughter (Deschanel)
who is pregnant and preparing to marry another woman.
Comedy ensues when Eileen attempts to
cover up her family's flaws so they can pass muster with the bishop
In one scene, Eileen confronts her
daughter about being a lesbian.
“You're living in sin,” Eileen
tells her daughter.
“Says who?” she responds.
“What do you think?” she asks.
“I don't have to think. I'm a
Catholic,” Eileen responds.
