The way she handles props, (oh-napkin-sorry) never missing a beat of dialogue-it amazes me. She is fall down funny in Emma2, but her Miss BAtes is never a caricature.
I love the giggle and the big, magnanimous grin that accompanies each "Oh, Napkin - sorry!" What a cute woman. There is no better creature...the good and ridiculous in her may be equal, but they are happily blended - in a warm, fun sort of way.
