Episode Summary

EDIT
Monkee Mother
AIRED:
Mr. Babbitt, the landlord, tells The Monkees, who are far behind in their rent, that a new tenant is moving in. The boys realize he isn't fooling when Milly Rudnick arrives with suitcases, a parrot and a poodle, both stuffed. When the boys protest Milly's presence, she asks them to stay on as boarders. Larry, a moving man, delivers Milly's furniture and she sets the boys to work helping him. Milly settles down in The Monkees' pad, making a sweater for Mike (whom she mistakenly refers to as Micky), urging Micky to fix the kitchen sink, and preparing gourmet meals for the boys. The Monkees later sing "Sometime in the Morning" to convince Millie's notion that all modern music isn't music. As The Monkees represent the fall of Southeast Asia with dominoes, Milly, a born matchmaker, meets Clarisse Rawlings at the supermarket and brings her home for Davy. Just then, Judy, Milly's sister, and her husband Arthur arrive with their four children, dressed as GIs and playing "army." When Micky tries to keep them out, the kids break down the door with a toy bazooka and chase The Monkees. Babbitt is stunned by the mob who has invaded the apartment. As everyone else goes out to the beach, The Monkees are bound and gagged. After three days, The Monkees feel the only way out is to marry Milly off. When Larry arrives with a lamp he forgot, the boys realize they have their man. The boys convince Larry and Milly they are in love, although Milly almost drives Larry away with an unending monologue about her late husband. The boys get rent money playing for Milly's wedding—where they perform "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)"—and feel their troubles are over. Then Milly announces she has moved on the same block and will visit them often.moreless
