The Facts of Life – S01 E01 – Rough Housing


This episode

The Drummonds visit Mrs. Garrett (Charlotte Rae) at Eastland School and during the Harvest Queen competition, Blair (Lisa Whelchel) makes a comment about tomboyish competitor Cindy not being feminine enough and even tries to insinuate that she’s a lesbian. Cindy (Julie Anne Haddock) decides not to attend the Harvest Ball, until Mrs. Garrett helps her with her self-image.


The Facts of Life is an American sitcom television series created by Dick Clair and Jenna McMahon, and a spin-off of Diff’rent Strokes that originally aired on NBC from August 24, 1979, to May 7, 1988, making it one of the longest-running sitcoms of the 1980s. The series focuses on Edna Garrett (Charlotte Rae) as she becomes a housemother (and from the second season onward, a dietitian as well) at the fictional Eastland School, an all-girls boarding school in Peekskill, New York
