Episode Summary

EDIT
Mama Fights Back
AIRED:
Mama is upset because a blender she bought was broken, and Ray Mart would not take it back. She calls KRAY's Chuck Duval, The Shopper's Pal for advice, but after telling her that he can't help her, she goes off on him. Mama creates an uproar, so much so that the manager of KRAY offers her a radio show as a consumer advocate, after letting Duval go. With the family and Iola as crew, Mama finds great success with her show. But soon she wants to add more pizzazz to the show. She adds theatrical effects and begins attacking local businesses. While a hit with the audience, the sponsors are not pleased, and Mama's radio career is soon ended.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Mama comes back from Ray-Mart and is mad about not being able to return the blender. Before she sits down, she unbuttons the top button of her sweater. A couple moments later, she is shown and it is re-buttoned, but she never touched it. She even undoes it a second time.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • (Mama is telling how she wants production value)
      Mama: No more nice Granny Harper.
      Vint: Gee Mama, when were you nice?
      Mama: I have always been nice, dope face!

    • (Vint is playing with the dump truck, and the marbles fall out)
      Vint: Now my marbles are all over the floor.
      Mama: You lost your marbles years ago, Vint.

    • (Harrison, Mama, and Vint are talking about working on the show)
      Mama: Do you really think Vinton can handle this job?
      Harrison: Oh, a child could do it.
      Mama: I know, but can he?

    • Harrison: You're performance today caused quite a stir. Uh, so much so that I talked things over with our lawyer.
      Mama: I didn't mean it! I didn't mean a word! I take it all back!
      Naomi: She is old! Her mind wanders!

    • (Iola's report on burger restaurants)

      Mama: Sue me?
      Iola: Well Thelma, you did say, and I quote, "The way you stink up the airwaves, someone should check the expiration date on your brain."
