So she gather's Bubba and Iola along with their significant other's and they go searching for a hula lamp Mama is wanting desperately. Due to the fact that Roselle has the same one and has been bragging about hers for years. Meanwhile, Vint leaves Naomi behind at the hotel and takes in a round of golf. Where he meets three guys who mistake him for a stock market insider, when he says his wife is a "Market Checker." He unknowningly gives them some advice and it triples their earnings in less than two hours. Mama finally finds the Hula lamp, but drops it as Billy surprises her from behind. It's then revealed Billy is really R.W. Fields, the owner of Field Corp. Thankful for all the help Vint has given them, R.W. invites Vint and the family to a farewell party. Trying to figure out a way to get rid of Billy once and for all Mama invites him to dinner to gently break it off. Only to discover at the party, his real secret.

    • Bubba: I thought you said you were a native. Lani: Uh, I am a native, or New Jersey.

    • Lars: In Norway, we have a special way of saying good-bye. Iola: Oh, how do you say it? Lars: Like this. *takes Iola and gives her a passionate kiss* Iola: Oh, well, when you put it that way, good-bye isn’t nearly so bad.

    • *Mama is going to leave to tour the island, leaving Naomi in her misery* Naomi: Oh fine. Go ahead. Live it up! Don’t give a single thought to your own son’s wife! Mama: Okay. That’s what mother-in-laws do best.
