Diller deconstructed the purpose of homemaker, a purpose multitude approaching to be unblemished following renouned sitcoms of the times similar to Leave it to Beaver.

Her amusement was self-deprecating. Her coming – shrill and unapproachable clothing, individualist makeup and crazily teased hair – went opposite stereotypes.

She was loud, tender and, at times, pell-mell as she took on subjects similar to her illusory father and child-bearing with her signature, slow cackle.
