Episode Summary

No Room at the Inn
It is the morning, and the family is interrupting Vint and Naomi. Sonja asks Vint to have a slumber party, but Vint says that that day is the one-year anniversary of when he married Naomi, and that he is taking her to a romantic motel. Before they leave, Mama gets a call from Aunt Effie, who needs her help because she fell down. Mama hitches a ride with Vint and Naomi to Effie's. Later on, as Vint and Naomi are enjoying their honeymoon, there is a knock on the door, and it is Mama. She explains what happened and says wants to go home. Vint refuses to do so, so she says she'll spend the night there. There are no rooms available, so she gets a rollaway bed. She has trouble sleeping there and wants the waterbed, but ends up in the rollaway bed anyway. Mama continues to cause trouble when she watches TV and learns it is a porno. She wakes Vint and Naomi up, and they all head for home, when Sonja's sleepover has gotten out of control.moreless

      • Why didn't Vint just drive Mama to that other hotel he said the manager mentioned? It was 60 miles away, but, he could have driven her there and been back in 2, 3 hours tops.
