As Helen Potts, Kathleen M. Brady shows just how powerful quiet goodness can be. Sure, Helen's confused and sometimes downright dumb, but all her instincts are true. She, too, wants attention from handsome Hal, but she earns it with kindness and compassion; she's all motherly amplitude to Flo's hard edges. At one point, she tells Hal she's made a Lady Baltimore cake, and he gives her a grateful kiss. It's the evening's sweetest moment.
