Miss Dipesto has alot of funny scenes but sometimes she has really sweet scenes too. I like the scene in My Fair David when Miss Dipesto gets upset with Miss Hayes for de-Daving Mr. Addison. I also like her at the end of Money Talks Maddie Walks when she tries to talk to Miss Hayes about Mr. Addison.
I really like the episode where she comes into the office singing to her walkman (can't remember which one it is). And in Twas The Episode Before Christmas when she tells Maddie there's no one she'd rather have a baby with. And I think she's pretty funny in all of North By Northwest Dipesto.
I really like what she's wearing in the end of Money Talks Maddie Walks, that gypsy skirt with the big belt. I think that's the episode anyway.

Ok hope I've got the right episode here (you guys will know what I'm talking about I'm sure), but in "Father Knows Last" when the Blue Moon office is falling apart, David makes a comment about "another dumb blonde in the office" and I love Agnes' reaction to that. I think the fact she physically gets angry with David is great to let out not just her frustrations but the viewers' frustrations too, cos we want Blue Moon back the way it was and David and Maddie back together, not in 2 different cities. Well, that's my view of it anyway and I love it!

I just watched another of my favourite scenes in Money Talks Maddie Walks. When Miss Dipesto is talking to David in his office and he's saying that we're born alone and we die alone and Miss Dipesto says 'apart from your mother - lots of times when people are born, the mother is there'. That's too funny!!
I like anytime Miss Dipesto tries to get David and Maddie together. Sometimes she tries to talk to Miss Hayes and sometimes she tries to talk to Mr. Addison. But she tries hard to get them to admit how they feel about the other.
She is really cute in the fourth season when she realizes how hurt David is about Maddie being gone and she tries to encourage him not to give up hope.
I agree with you Lori, I think Agnes is there to act for the viewer and sees what we can see but tries to do something about it. Like in "Between A Yuk and A Hard Place" she tries to talk to David about not going to Virginia (? I can't remember apologies if got wrong place) because despite how she is acting, Maddie needs him there. And then conspiring with MacGilicuddy to sabotage the lift is cool too. Sorry, elevator!!

I think that Miss Dipesto is a good listener too. When Maddie is wondering about something concerning David, she talks to Agnes about it. Sometimes Agnes gives very good advice and other times Agnes doesn't butt in and let's Maddie think about it herself. Late in the 3rd season during the episodes with Sam there, Agnes several times tries to talk to Maddie. Agnes understands how David feels and she seems to know how Maddie feels too.
I know this scene is third season...but one of my favorite scenes with Agnes and Bert is that scene in I am Curious...Maddie when they are playing cards at Agnes's desk and commenting on the intensity of "office romances". The scene on surface seems to be about their romance, but the subtext and turn of the scene tosses it squarely into the reality of their bosses's relationship. The scene is hot and the insinuations even hotter!
I like that scene too. It is interesting in how what Agnes and Bert are saying starts out being about how they feel about each other, or at least you think it is. Then near the end of the conversation Bert mentions Mr. Addison and Agnes says Miss Hayes. Which means that maybe Bert and Agnes were underneath the conversation thinking about themselves, but had to say their bosses names in order not to speak about their own relationship out loud. When I watch it I keeep thinking about Maddie and David through the whole scene and how we saw Bert and Agnes act out what I was thinking about Maddie and David. Confusing! This is so layered and complicated. This writing makes Moonlighting one of the really great television shows!
