That was a fabulous scene by a fabulous actress.
In Canada, we are just watching the funeral (it started last night) so we're still in the throes of grief :(

Does any other actor on the show have such an amazing body of "moments", with such a range of emotions? It demonstrates part of Deirdre's unique character, the mix of humour and drama in a single moment. It helps explain the huge response to this loss.

I voted for the AA meeting. That was the best one by far. :) Miss you Diedre. R.I.P. dear girl.

Although it was not meant to be that way, the jelly scene was the perfect swan-song for Deirdre.
