Default Video: First time I saw an orchid on TV, Mama's Family (1988)

From one of my favorite shows as a kid, Mama's Family 1988 S04E23 'Bed and Breakdown'. This was the first time I saw an orchid on TV. In it, Mrs. Thornberry refers to her 'Paphiopedilum orchid' which was actually a Phalaenopsis candy-stripe hybrid. I would love to know the backstory on this episode and how the orchid made its way into the plot. There must've been an orchid lover on the production team?

Here's the link to the video: https://youtu.be/wgQMww_U2uE

I bet we're going to criticize the potting and the amount of light it's getting.

I bet they just wanted to make those folks seem as rich and fancy and snooty as possible.

You know, like all of us!

Yet another pest to add to the list... Pigs!

I note the orchid doesn't seem to be carrying very many leaves. Likely improper fertilizer ratios. And a very inexperienced orchid grower... seeking cooler temperatures for this one?
