We love you too much!

What's not to love about these carefree, gay Roma? Well, OK, maybe Jamie Farr's terrible accent isn't so lovable, but who knows what a family like this might sound like. And speaking of terrible, check out those hideous white boots on the woman in the background during the spell- casting scene on Main Street. If those things are made for walking, she needs to be moving on. I'm not sure we can cite a best line in the episode although La Farona's inebriated sound effects are pretty comical. It's probably the song the gypsies sing throughout that most viewers remember. It's not one of the great episodes, but it's entertaining nonetheless.
