Episode Summary

The Big Nap
Mama has been spending the past week watching detective movies on TV, leaving the family to be forced to go out to eat. The family isn't happy about this, but rub it in the next morning when Mama is falling asleep while doing her housework. But Mama's life soon starts to mirror her movies. Iola comes over and reveals that her Mother is missing. The family splits up on how to search for her, and Mama stays home near the phone. But while waiting, she falls asleep, and dreams she is a detective in the 1940s, where she has to search for her client Miss Neighborly's mother. Though in the dream, the "Mother" never existed, and everyone turns against Detective Harper. Mama wakes up and told that Iola's Mother has been found at the Donut Hut.moreless
