As Mama and Iola are sewing a quilt for Naomi's baby, Mama tells Iola she hopes the next baby quilt she makes is for Iola. This makes Iola break into tears, revealing she wants a husband and family. Mama tells her that she'll help her land a man. However, none of the activities prove successful for Iola. Luckily, she is able to find a man herself. Burt Cooper, Iola's new beau, takes her out for many dates, and Iola decides to introduce him to the Harpers.
