No one is ever safe when Geraldine is around. The fact that there are "special days" dedicated to just her says a lot about her as a character and her influences on her family. All of the Proudman's are selfish in their own ways, but no one is more selfish than Geraldine. The fact that her family has to rally around her just for some big news that really has nothing to do with them makes her one of the most unlikeable characters, in my opinion. Aside from Geraldine's boisterous and demanding personality, she knows her kids very well and when she is ready to, she will own up to her past mistakes. Although her marriage with Darcy did fall apart, she never truly stopped loving him, no matter how well she tried to hide it. This truly comes to light when Darcy passes away and he is cremated. It can be well assumed that Jimmy's free spirit came from his mother, whereas the discipline that Nina and Billie have came from Darcy (Billie & Jimmy's birth father and Nina's step-father).
