Episode Summary

EDIT
Mama on Jeopardy
AIRED:
When Iola hears that Jeopardy's holding local auditions in Raytown, she drags Thelma along instead of going to the white sale. Iola is mostly interested in meeting Alex Trebek (who isn't in town). So as it turns out Mama is the only one who could answer more than two questions correctly (both about Shakespeare) and they end up inviting her to appear on the show. Her opponents on Jeopardy quickly jump out to a huge lead and Mama has a hard time getting into the game. At the end of the Double Jeopardy! round, Mama lucks up and answers a thousand dollar question right and then gets a Three Stooges question and manages to get herself out of the hole by $100 and is elgible to play Final Jeopardy! The Final Jeopardy! category is Shakespeare, but the question completely stumps her, and the champion wins again! Thelma thinks she's going home with Press-On Nails, but announcer Johnny Gilbert tells her she's won a trip for 4 to Hawaii. She kisses Alex, which makes Iola faint & annouces she's taking her worthless family with her to Hawaii.moreless
