Episode Summary

EDIT
Flounder's Day
AIRED:
Thelma comes out with a wheelbarrow, seeing who wants to help her mulch the yard over the weekend. But everyone, except her has plans for Founders Day. Vint will be riding on the cobra float, Naomi will be selling cotton candy by the waterfront, Iola is the stage manager for the outdoor pageant, and Bubba is starring in the play as James A. Ray. Mama talks about how she just hates that day, because of her being beat out for the lead in the pageant 50 years ago. The part she was beat out for is still sung by Verna Mae Ray. Mama tells them about how she could sing circles around her, but they picked Verna Mae because of the name value. Grandma Crowley always said her day would come. Just then, Iola comes in with bad news. She says that Verna Mae will not be able to sing this year. Mama asks why, and Iola says that she is dead. Bubba suggests that the show must go on, and Iola says that she will hold an audition for anyone who wants to try out. Thelma calls around to see if anyone wants to audition for the part. She makes the day on the day of choir practice, so none of the good singers can make it. The Director of the play shows up for auditions, but Mama is clearly out sung by her only competition and ends up giving the part to her.moreless
