Episode Summary

EDIT
Mama in One
AIRED:
Trying to update the church's phone directory is hard enough, but having to do it with everyone running in and out is impossible. But fortunately for Mama her wishes of a quite house are answered. First Bubba announces that he's pledging a fraternity called "Sigma Alpha Pie" or "SAP" and will be away all weekend. Then Iola asks Mama to watch her goldfish for the weekend while she takes her parents on a trip. Vint gets a call next and he and Naomi are invited to use a friends cabin all weekend. Mama anticipates a few days of peace all alone, but after finishing the update on the phone directory and realizing the Tv is on the blink and not being able to read, she is totally consumed with boredom. So much so that she starts talking to the goldfish, while also over feeding him. Not to mention reorganizing the kitchen is a complete failure as she ends up out on the front Porch "Singing in the Rain" literally. Mama can't wait for the family to get back and she prepares a big turkey to welcome them home. But Vint and Naomi go straight to bed in an attempt to recapture the megic of the weekend. Then Bubba, who has just become a "SAP", comes in and also goes to bed, seems he's tired and full from eating worms and other assorted items. Lastly Iola arrives to pick up her goldfish, but she can't stay cause her mother got a rash and has to be rubbed down every twenty minutes. So Mama's all alone again.moreless
