Episode Summary

EDIT
There is Nothing Like the Dames
AIRED:
Iola is helping Mama prepare a fancy luncheon for an exclusive Raytown society group, the Dames. After Mama decides what she will serve, Bubba comes home and tells them he got the lead in the fraternity play, but the lead is of a woman. Vint and Naomi, who have been house hunting, return and say they have found a place. But it turns out they have gotten a mobile home and plan to live in a trailer park. Everyone helps them fix it up, and on the day of Mama's luncheon is when they are planning to leave. But the mobile home breaks down, and Vint and Naomi are stuck in the driveway. The rest of the lunch doesn't go well, with the Vint and Naomi issue and Bubba coming home in his costume, a skirt and heels. When the Dames see this, they call the family low class, and Mama tells them to leave. She never becomes a Dame, and Vint and Naomi learn that to get their home fixed will cost a lot.moreless
