  • Episode Description
  • After hearing the news that her sister Loretta insists that Mama Maybelle move to California to live with Nell in Glenlawn after the wedding, Nell is not keen to the idea. Even when Mama Maybelle finds out that Loretta is planning on sending her to live with Nell in Glenlawn since she and her soon to be husband Howard will be living in Colorado in privacy, she is not keen either. However the Chief tells Nell that Mama can move in because she talked Grandpa into moving in. Nell can't believe his response. In the end, Mama says she loves Nell, and was always looking out for her, but now all she needs to do is get a small 1 bedroom apartment and she will be all set and won't have to get in the way of her daughters lives.moreless

    • Nell: Mama, why are you cleaning up? You know Della's coming over to do it for you. Mama: Nell, you forget. I was married to a minister. Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Nell: Mama, heaven ain't this clean. Mama: It will be when I get there.

    • (Nell's on the phone with the Chief, talking about having her mother move in with them.) Nell: Chief, I'm gonna have to level with you. Do you know what it would be like to have a loudmouthed, pushy, know-it-all black lady move in your house and take over? Carl: Yeah.
