Joe's Argument for God:

Speaking of The Facts of Life, see how Joe reacts to Blair's Socratic questioning the existence of God. I think this is an apt metaphor for the way pre-Enlightenment societies tended to treat those who questioned sacred religious cows, going to back to Socrates. Allan Bloom must have written this script, or at least have been script consultant.

Also, guess who Blair's "nun" sister is. (Is it very sad that I remember watching the original broadcast of this twenty some years ago and can tell you why Blair doesn't believe in God: It has something to do with her parents' divorce.)
