That is exactly what I thought -- like she was channeling DM. It was actually a little odd. There were a couple of weird moments when she was way off-base with jokes, also.
Maybe Rob has a different take?
I agree, but the Doc never made a list of things to do to get on with the villagers. Yet Morton has an odd analytical bent unlike Martin. There is something else too that gets me. She acts almost emotionless and that jars with being a wife with four kids. There must have been trauma in her life? Perhaps that will be revealed latter.
