Episode Summary

EDIT
To Grandmother's House We Go
AIRED:
Khadijah and Regine send their mothers to the Bahamas as a Mother's Day gift, and Khadijah's grandmother comes to stay with her. Rita expresses concern about the fact that Nana has been wandering off, and fears that her age is showing. Nana vanishes, and Khadijah is stunned to find that she has returned to New Jersey for a rendezvous with her boyfriend, the town baker. With Khadijah as a buffer, Nana finally has a talk with Rita about her need for a personal life. After Laverne reminds her about her affair with a snorkel instructor, Rita agrees to give Nana a break, provided that she be more honest in the future. Overton videotapes the events as a gift for his mother. While researching his family tree, Kyle discovers that his great-great-grandfather invented the sipping straw, only to be bilked out of his money by a hustler who was one of Max's ancestors. Kyle has the last laugh when he learns that the pain of losing their fortunes was what first brought his great-great-grandparents together. Tag: Overton shows some leftover footage.moreless

      • Khadijah: Your granny died 15 years ago.
        Synclaire: She did not. Mom and Dad told me she bought a farm.
        Khadijah: Synclaire... she bought the farm.

      • Nana: Blackmailing me after all the whippings I've saved her from?
        Milton: They think we don't know how to make love 'cause we old.

      • Khadijah: (reading Nana's note) "Dear, Khadijah, I didn't want to be in the way, so I went home. Thanks for everything. P.S. does that Max girl live here or not?"

      • Regine: Your Nana took my wig. My Cleopatra wig. That's real hair from the Philippines. You better find her!

      • Overton: (to video camera) Mom, I'd just like to take this time out to assure you that the misplacing of elderly people is not an everyday occurrence here at the brownstone.

      • Nana: Well, you know, snorkelers are good with the pucker, but bakers are great with their hands.
        Regine and Laverne: Ah, suki suki now!

      • Nana: In my day, mothers and daughters didn't talk about these things. We just snuck around and everything turned out all right.

      • Kyle: Ah Max, you are here.
        Regine: What are the odds of that?

      • Nana: Do you tell your mother about every man you've been intimate with?
        Khadijah (innocent tone): Grandmother, why, I'm saving myself for the man I'm going to marry.
        Nana: So am I.

      • Khadijah: Nana, are you here?
        Synclaire: I think somebody's here. I smell Ben Gay and collard greens.

      • Khadijah: Is there anything I can bring you back?
        Nana: A great-grandbaby.
        Khadijah: How about a turkey burger?

      • Nana: Ella Fitzgerald would still be in Virginia singing for corn fritters if it wasn't for me. I told her, "Don't worry if you don't know the words. Just make up some funny sounds."

      • Kyle: "People, my research has proven what I have suspected all along--I am descended from greatness."
        Max: "Oh, come on, Kyle. All test tubes are the same."

        Kyle: "I will have you know that my great-great-grandfather, Elijah Barker, invented a device that helped to usher in the modern age. I give to you, the sipping straw, better known as Elijah's hollow drinking dowel."
        Max: "So what you're saying is, your family has sucked for generations."

        Kyle: "Khadijah, come on. This woman is far too young to be a grandmother."
        Nana: "You were right, Rita. He sure can shovel it."

        Laverne: "Regine, I have got to show you this resort ensemble I found."
        Regine: "If you stand on the beach at night, you can help ships find the shore."
        Overton: "Can you turn that away from the camera?"

      • Rita: Oh my God! Tickets to the Bahamas.
        Synclaire: Obie, go hand-held. They're crying.

      • Kyle: Ladies, you know, I cannot get over it. Every time I see you two, you get younger and more beautiful.
        Rita: Kyle, you really know how to sling it.
        Laverne: Oh, hush. I like it. Go ahead.
        Kyle: Laverne, it has been a pleasure basking in your radiant beauty. Mrs. James... bye-bye.

      • Nana: I don't want that town crier of a mother of yours getting a hold of this.
        Regine: Please. If you're not pregnant, this isn't big enough for my mother.
