36: Suzanne Sugarbaker Accidentally Dates a Lesbian


“Suzanne Goes Looking for a Friend” (April 9, 1990)

The previous Designing Women episode made Drew cry, but this one is far tamer and far more in line with what we’d consider sitcom-ish. In this Delta Burke showcase episode, Suzanne Sugarbaker attempts to make a friend outside Sugarbaker & Associates — and ends up finding a former pageant friend who’s now an out lesbian. This episode does gay panic from the female perspective and largely holds up today… except for the episode’s final line.

Watch Being Frank, that movie Glen wrote, either on DVD or on digital
