Episode Summary

EDIT
Mama Buys a Car
AIRED:
Mama cannot make her Meals On Wheels deliveries because Fran didn't come back in time, so she decides to buy her own car. While looking through the ads, Mama sees a used car salesman, realizes she knows him, and figures she can get a good deal on a car from this Willie Potts. Mama goes to Willie's dealership, finds a car she falls in love with, and gets Willie to sell it to her for one thousand dollars. Mama drives it home and the whole family wants to be taken for a ride. When she pulls off the curb and starts driving, the hubcaps pop off, and the engine blows up. Mama and Vint go to visit Willie. Mama asks for her money back, but Willie refuses to refund her money and tells her to get out. As they are leaving, Vint remembers that Willie was a weasel as a child. Mama storms in Potts' office and tells Babcock, who is interested in buying all the cars, what happened. Mama ends up getting all her money back, and Babcock doesn't buy any of the cars. Mama decides to look for another car from someone she doesn't know.moreless
