Joel: “The only
consequence of all this will be, that whenever I open a nice Bordeaux, there
will be the distant, distasteful memory of a nutcase who tried to kill me because
I allowed her to kiss me on the cheek under false pretenses. I can live with
||After the passing of one of Cicely's most-loved eccentrics, Soapy Sanderson, Joel and Maggie battle over
the proper handling of his one hundred acres of land, left to them in his will.
When Soapy Sanderson (guest star John
McLiam), one of the town's most-loved eccentrics, dies, he leaves his land
and prized huskies to both Joel and Maggie. At first, Maggie is impressed at
Joel's noble gesture to give the land back to the Native Americans. So impressed,
that she actually warms up to Joel over an expensive bottle of wine. But the
flame is put out quickly when she discovers that Joel has arranged to sell the
land for $50,000 to business-minded Indian Chief Ronkonkoma (guest star Nick
Ramus), who intends to use the land as a tax write-off.
Much to Ed's delight, two student filmmakers (guest stars Darryl
Fong and Christina Miller)
from Kenyon College arrive to document the life of Soapy, who earned two doctorate
degrees from the college and was a major benefactor.
Maggie reminds Soapy of his wife, physically and, they both "sang their own
song." Soapy's doctorates in Mythology and Theology.
Maggie says Cicely is a town of 815 with 16 hours of daylight.
