The patriarch of the Robertson family is not known for showing emotion. In this rare moment, from the Season 7 Christmas episode, Phil breaks down in tears while praying for his neighbor, Miss Theressa.
Theressa Lewis has known the Duck Dynasty family for about 40 years, and had fallen on really hard times. When Christmas rolled around, Willie suggested to his family that they give Theressa a new house. Nobody questioned the gift; they all knew she deserved this gift.
"I can't think of a more deserving woman of a new house than Theressa Lewis," Phil said. "Most people just think in terms of money, but it's way more than that. Loving God and loving your neighbor are the two greatest commands in the Bible. This come under the heading of loving your neighbor. We love 'em."
The entire Robertson family gathered outside of Miss Lewis' new house to surprise her as her son drove her up the driveway. "I'm gonna pass out," she says when she finally figures out what is going on. Tears flowed as she walked up to her new house.
After they give Theressa a tour of her living accommodations, they all join hands to pray.
"Father, we just give you a great big thank you for Theressa and all of her family. Father, as you know, probably, I don't cry that much but on behalf of my sister, and her kids and grandkids. It's just hard to stop the tears."
It's always hard to see someone cry, but when Phil does it, it is that much harder. You can tell he cares so deeply about his friends and neighbors, and he can't help it.
