Episode Summary

EDIT
Gift Horse
AIRED:
The game is about to go into extra innings and Vint, Naomi and Bubba are glued to the set. Mama on the other hand wants to be glued to the set, so she can watch the last part of a mini-series she is following. When Vint points out if Mama would buy them a VCR, she could be taping her program as they finish watching the game. Meanwhile, Iola brings over the latest of her gifts to thank Mama for watching her gold fish, while her and her parents are out of town. Tired of Iola's gaudy gifts, the family comes up with a plan to get rid of the gifts and get the money for their new VCR at the same time. They decide to have a yard sale. Everything goes swimmingly as they easily earn enough money for the VCR and plus a little extra. But everyone refuses to buy even one of Iola's "Homemade Horrors." Thinking they should hide the money Vint stores it in one of Iola's unsellable gifts for safe keeping. Iola and her parents arrive home sooner than expected and she finds her "hand-made treasures" for sale. She throws a fit and takes her gifts with her when she leaves. Realizing Iola has the money for their VCR now, they're forced to invite her over to reconcile. In the end they make up, and Iola knowing they probably would, went and bought the VCR for them.moreless
