  • Episode Description
  • Iola is doing props for the Pepper Pot Playhouse, hoping Mama will donate her couch. Mama refuses, until she meets the star of the play, Leslie Lemoyne, falling for his charm and asking him over for dinner. Meanwhile, Vint and Naomi watch "Tri State's Most Wanted," and after hearing the reward for Bobby "Tex" Snider, become convinced they can catch him. They never succeed with Tex, and decide to move on to someone new the same night Mama and Leslie will have dinner. Vint and Naomi leave, leaving "Tri State's Most Wanted" on. Mama sees the latest felon and realizes that it is Leslie just as he is arriving. Mama plans on turning him in and captures him by tying him up, though Leslie thinks that Mama is being kinky. But she calls the cops to turn him in. When the family gets home, they don't see Mama and wonder where she and Leslie are since he never showed up to the show. But the two arrive home and all is cleared up.moreless
