Attending last night’s reunion were Constance Marie (wife Angie), Belita Moreno (mother “Benny”), Valente Rodriguez (best buddy Ernie), Masiela Lusha (daughter Carmen), Luis Armand Garcia (son Max), and Aimee Garcia (niece Veronica).
Watching the reunion, it’s easy to see that the actors truly like each other. At one point, Lopez was overcome with emotion for his TV clan when speaking about their time together while shooting the show. Lopez shared that he was very lonely growing up and didn’t know how to feel like he was part of a family until the sitcom.
Lopez also said that he regretted that the cast wasn’t able to shoot a true series finale for the show. After toasting the cast, Lopez dreams what the final scenes could have been. They pay homage to two of the most memorable series finales in history — Newhart (with a surprise bedmate) and The Sopranos. And though, Emiliano Diez (Angie’s dad, Vic) didn’t appear onstage with the rest of the cast, he does show up in the second scene.
