  • Episode Description
  • It is the morning, and the family is interrupting Vint and Naomi. Sonja asks Vint to have a slumber party, but Vint says that that day is the one-year anniversary of when he married Naomi, and that he is taking her to a romantic motel. Before they leave, Mama gets a call from Aunt Effie, who needs her help because she fell down. Mama hitches a ride with Vint and Naomi to Effie's. Later on, as Vint and Naomi are enjoying their honeymoon, there is a knock on the door, and it is Mama. She explains what happened and says wants to go home. Vint refuses to do so, so she says she'll spend the night there. There are no rooms available, so she gets a rollaway bed. She has trouble sleeping there and wants the waterbed, but ends up in the rollaway bed anyway. Mama continues to cause trouble when she watches TV and learns it is a porno. She wakes Vint and Naomi up, and they all head for home, when Sonja's sleepover has gotten out of control.moreless

    Notes (2)

    • Aunt Effie is uncredited in this episode, probably because she is just a voice over when Thelma talks with her over the phone. It sounds like it is still Dorothy Van doing the voice, though.

    • Shown as the 30th episode in syndication.

    Trivia (2)

    • Mama's good night rhyme to Vint and Naomi (See Quotes) is the same one Vint says to Mama in the episode "Bed And Breakdown." However, Vint and Naomi were find kinder in response to Mama than she was to Vint.

    • Why didn't Vint just drive Mama to that other hotel he said the manager mentioned? It was 60 miles away, but, he could have driven her there and been back in 2, 3 hours tops.
