Episode Summary

EDIT
Amateur Night
AIRED:
Mama, Naomi, and Fran take Vint to the Bigger Jigger to cheer Vint up because he didn't get a promotion at work. As they are about to eat, a talent contest is announced, with the fist prize of one hundred dollars, and Naomi suggests he do his Fred Astaire routine, with Fran playing piano. Vint and Fran are nervous before they go on, but Naomi helps calm them down. When they get on stage, all goes well. Vint is a big hit and ends up winning. But this starts going to his head. He changes his head lining routine to something completely different as Vinnie Vegas, fires Fran for a professional pianist, and tells Naomi, who is still supporting him, to not be his wife and just be a groupie. The women decide to not go, until they realize how harsh the Jigger crowd can be. They head down there to stop Vint from making a fool of himself. Mama follows him into the men's room to tell him a story, and Vint finally realizes not to be Vinnie Vegas. He is about to go on, but they get locked in the bathroom. Afterwards at home, Vint is better and all is well again.moreless
