Sitcom Diva of the Day: Maryann Thorpe

While we were waiting for Megan Mullally to explode on to the screens in ‘Will & Grace’, Christine Baranski provided us with the closest thing US TV had to Joanna Lumley’s Patsy from ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ with the divine Maryann Thorpe, consistently outshining every other character on ‘Cybill’. J’adore!

Maryann: I’ll have a Vodka Martini, two olives.
Serving Wench: I’m sorry we don’t have a bar.
Maryann: …This is EARTH isn’t it?
