She said about the episode:

"It was a great episode because I left the stage when I began the show, and it was just to really get to act, not just be the cute, sassy kid, but to really dig in and do some work."

While also in an interview with ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, Kellie "Laura Winslow" spoke beautifully about "Family Matters'" matriarch, Rosetta LeNoire, who passed on in 2002.

While in the TV show, LeNoire played Laura's mom, as she was fondly called "Mother Winslow." Kellie called the late star "their foundation." This was during the "Family Matters" cast reunion held by EW.

At the reunion, fellow star and "Family Matters," alum, Telma Hopkins told the news outlet that she had helped convince Lenoire to take the role.

Hopkins recalled that:

"Bob Boyett and Tom Miller called me in about Family Matters; they mentioned that they were looking for a mother for the show, and I said, ‘I have the perfect person for you.’ … They called her, and she turned them down."

Telma continued as she added that Rosetta had a hard time on a previous movie she worked on, so she wasn't optimistic about "Family Matters."

She, however, convinced Lenoire, who later agreed to be a part of the popular TV series.
