  • Episode Description
  • Naomi and Vint's wedding is coming up. Mama, Naomi, Fran, Ellen, and Sonja clean up the house in preparation while Vint and Buzz go to a bachelor party. While the women, minus Sonja, are having a little party, Ellen is worried that her husband Bruce is having an affair, and the family tries to tell her that he is not. She believes them, and they begin talking about Eunice and end up making fun of her. But when Eunice visits, she makes trouble and tells Ellen that her husband is cheating. Buzz returns with his intoxicated father, and soon a fight breaks out, mainly because no one wants Eunice to sing.moreless

    • Fran: I think sex education is extremely valuable. Mama: Horse puckey! I say, let them find out the same way we did: trial and error.

    • Naomi: Sonja honey, come on over here. Help me unpack these things. Sonja: I just put up a streamer! What am I, a slave around here?

    • Sonja: I just realized why they call these streamers! Because they like, stream down the wall. Fran: Brilliant. Brilliant observation!

    • Mama: This wedding could be such a happy occasion if it wasn’t for the bride.

    • Naomi: Sonja? I think it's time you went upstairs to bed. Good night baby. Sonja: Stop giving me orders. You're not my mother. Naomi: Well, no I'm not, but as your friend, I think it's time you went upstairs and got some beauty sleep. Sonja: You can't be my friend; you're gonna be my stepmother. Naomi: Oh, I see. Alright, in that case, as your stepmother, I say, "Get your butt up off of this sofa and into your bed before I take my hairbrush to it." Sonja: Hairbrush? In your dreams. (Naomi give her a look, and Sonja yawns and goes upstairs)

    Trivia (1)

    • When Ellen asks Mama how she'd like it if Carl was seeing another woman across town, Mama replies that she'd have given him bus fare. But when Mama thinks he's having an affair in his grave in "A Grave Mistake," she freaks out. Why did she change her mind, and why was it okay when he was alive but not when he's dead and gone?
