    Lisa Landry From "Sister, Sister" Was, Is, And Always Will Be Iconic — And Here Are 17 Reasons Why

    The show may have been called Sister, Sister, but it was all about Lisa, Lisa.

    It's a debate as old as television itself: Who is the absolute greatest TV mom of all time?!


    Well, I'm here to squash that discussion right now for's Lisa Landry from Sister, Sister. That's the answer. Frankly, there's ZERO competition. There's Lisa, then there's everyyyone else.


    So here are just a FEW of the times Lisa proved that she was, without a doubt, the best:

    1. The time she delivered this A+ burn:

    2. The time she called off her wedding and took this:


    3. The time she was definitely NOT disappointed:

    4. The time she gave this helpful advice to a fellow churchgoer:

    5. The time she mixed up her snack(?) containers:

    6. The time she told her neighbor THIS:

    7. The time she dropped some straight-up wisdom:

    lisa landry is the greatest tv mom of all time

    8. The time she completely understood the job market:

    9. The time she made this error (and was STILL supportive):

    10. The time she was a little TOO moved by the spirit:


    11. The time she knew just what to say to get the nurses to help her babies:


    12. The time she made this announcement at a grocery store:


    13. The time she refused to be the one to do the dishes:

    14. The time she won three tickets for beauty makeovers...


    Lisa: Ooh, girls! I got three gift certificates for beauty makeovers!

    Ray: You need three, huh?

    15. ...and didn't hesitate to take the girls with her:


    16. The time she apologized to an old blind date:


    Lisa: Louie I know it was just a blind date, but when I opened the door, I shouldn't have said, "I wish I were blind."

    17. And finally — the time she made Ray fake ~being intimate~ with her to get her mother (who was staying in the room next door) off her back:


    So, uh, yeah...there ya have it. Lisa Landry is, was, and will always be the best TV mom of all time, PERIOD. BAR NONE. NO CONTEST. THANK YOU, BYE.

    I wonder if Jackée Harry suffers from any spinal damage from carrying sister sister on her back all 6 seasons
