I have always loved DW (and Murphy Brown). I watched both as a kid when they are on TV and reruns (when they used to air them).

I always enjoyed watching Julia rants and Suzanne's antics. Suzanne's relationship with Anthony was one of the best parts of the show. My favorite episode was when Anthony had to pose as Suzanne's maid Consuela so she could pass the citizenship test: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggSdaCuVxVc

Other favorites:

Julia telling off "Imogene" about AIDS after she remarks that it was killing "all the right people". Julia: "I've known you for 27 years, and all I can say is, if God was giving out sexually transmitted diseases to people as a punishment for sinning, then you would be at the free clinic all the time!" This was a very controversial scene when it aired in 1988: http://youtu.be/zcEC3vbskGM

Julia putting a beauty queen in her place after she belittled Suzanne - her "that was the night the lights went out in Georgia" speech: http://youtu.be/qz_ZpoYBzaw

Julia's crazy people speech: "I'm saying this the South, and we're proud of our crazy people. We don't hide them up in the attic. We bring them right down to the living room and show them off. You see, Phyllis, no one in the South ever asks if you have crazy people in your family, they just ask which side they're on." http://youtu.be/W3KQgulBzh0

My mother's family is Southern and that is so true. ;)

And the episode where Charlene tells off a sexist minister. Benice also had some excellent lines in this episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cTUSQU36Wg&feature=related
