Now, don't tell Sally Field, but off camera, the Flying Nun acted pretty much like most of the Nuns from that romantic baby boomers era.
See her in the classroom, measuring Little Nancy's mini skirt.
"Tsk tsk Nancy, you'll have to go home to get a longer dress!"
See her at daily communion, putting kleenex on heads of uncloaked girls.
"How humiliating Helen, maybe your Mother will get a phone call from the Mother Superior!"
See her smacking unruly children in her 2nd grade class!
"Maybe this will remind you there is no pleasure without pain."
And the day she caught little Wolfgang drinking communion from his Father's beer stein was more than she could stand!
"Perhaps a swift rap on the lederhosen will cure your cravings, That will be 25 hail Mary's and 42 our Father's."
Then one day, a handsome man showed up at Our Sister Of Rapscallion, the Flying Nun's school convent, and she quickly dismissed herself from the room.
It was Montgomery, the Canadian Mounty.
Rumors abounded, and a clever paparazzi photographer uncovered this scandalous photo of the F.N. having dinner at Chow Chow's Chinese Restaurant with muscular Montgomery!
The powers that be caught wind of the Flying Nun's indiscretions,
and she was called into the office immediately for evaluation.
The Flying Nun took a vow of silence and withdrew to her quarters to water the plants and
have a heart to heart chat with her Our Mother of Saints, living portrait. The portrait literally glowed through F.N.'s spilled exploits of Montgomery.
Perhaps there's a little rebel in ever saint, but for now, the Flying Nun is grounded, and cut back to household manual labor. Watch out kitty!
