  • Episode Description
  • As Mama, Vint, Naomi, and Iola are preparing for the Church Carnival, Bubba is looking for a band for Homecoming, and finally succeeds in booking the Bonecrushers. However, he tells the family that the band will be staying with them. They arrive soon after, but it turns out the Bonecrushers are an all-female heavy metal band, much to the family's surprise. The hardcore girls intimidate the family at first, but thanks to a few stories they tell about their personal lives, the Bonecrushers help Mama and Iola out with their projects for the Church Carnival. Snake helps Iola fix her project, and Ciji and Mojo help Mama out the recipe of Ciji's Gram Gram's candy cakes. The girls even trade in their leather and chains for a retro look to sell their cakes at the carnival. For Mama and Iola and the Bonecrushers, everything is a success. But the girls decide to go back to their metal look, which disappoints Mama.moreless

    • Mama: The Bonecrushers? Who's their lead singer, Andre the Giant?

    • (Vint tells Mama he's going to use her old scale to guess people's weight at the carnival) Mama: With that old thing? Every time I stand on that piece of junk, it adds twenty pound to my weight. Vint: No Mama. Look, it works perfect. Mama: I'm tellin' ya, the damn scale lies!

    • Iola: Well, it's not funny, Thelma, it took me six months to make these. Now Sherman's going into battle with burnt buns. Snake: Hey, isn't that your basic felt applique? Iola: Uh-huh. Snake: I could help ya make a new one. Iola: You?! Snake: Yeah. My sister was an exotic dancer. I used to help make all her costumes. Mama: Say no more. Snake, you run along and help Iola. Iola: B-b-b-but Thelma . . . Mama: But nothing, Iola. If she can use a chainsaw, I'm sure she can handle a glue gun. Iola: Well, very well. Come along Snake dear. Mama: I hope General Sherman doesn't wind up with pasties and a G-string.

    • Naomi: That is my husband. Snake: Too bad.

    • Mojo: Hey, ya know, for nasty lookin' stuff, this doesn't taste too bad. Mama: Well, thank you for the rave, Mojo.
