Agreed regarding her ability to rock a suit.  I think her lankier proportions really make it work well in terms of driving home the professional look, since it creates the illusion of adulthood.  The mime costume was a perfect touch, too.  
I think you figured it out there, yes, now that I think of it, I too think it was her lankier proportions that helped her pull off the suit so well.

Interesting fact - Maria's last name (Pappas) means "priest."  We've long-since been speculating about how much her character fits the old world religious mold and joked around about her being destined to become a nun, even long before she was assigned an official last name.

Funny how things worked out, isn't it? Maria

Pretty big coincedence - Considering what her heritage likely is given her name, makes me think of the typical superstitious character in horror movies who gets the sense early on that a demonic presence is lurking due to how religious they are, like in Paranormal Activity 2... I can't believe I own that whole series. Something must be wrong with me.

At any rate, as nice as it was that Maria did get her own episode in a sense, I still kind of feel like some of the magic and mystery was lost as a result of it. How little we actually knew about her gave her a significant amount of intrigue in my eyes, especially considering she was always right there in Mr. Ratburn's class for all those years of the show, never saying a word.

Snowth Poogle wrote:I still will be scared shitless if it turns out Maria's episode deals with her being quiet and reserved because she was once molested... that's just about the one of the only subjects they haven't touched on yet, and we kind of ran with it over at ECC for a while... where Greg Bailey also sees what's going on... the announcement of Maria's episode came kind of afterwards, we may have unwittingly sparked some kind of idea.
A Lotta Moms wrote:Ah, yes.  I've had that scenario in the back of my mind ever since I learned of her upcoming signature episode.  It really was the perfect finale for Old ECC during its dying days.  If they don't credit us or at least give us in-episode cameos, I'll be most disappointed.  clown

Honestly, if an episode for Maria had had to happen, rather than just another Disease of the Week episode like it basically turned out to be... am I crazy for thinking something like that could have been a really great thing to focus on? Arthur obviously hasn't shied away from presenting children with serious topics in an easy-to-understand fashion, be it cancer like in "The Great MacGrady" to traumatizing disasters like 9/11 in "April 9th." And abuse IS something too many children face, be it sexual or otherwise. Who knows for sure, but I can at least see potential in such an idea, as difficult as it may be to approach delicately.

In the end, at least stuttering is something that some people do face difficulty with, even if it isn't typically seen as traumatizing or seriously affecting the way child abuse is, for obvious reasons. At least it's a thing some kids undoubtedly struggle with. Of course, if Maria or anyone else could draw comfort and inspiration from anyone regarding dealing with it, I say to look no further than this wonderful gentleman:
