Episode Recap

When Zena insists that Louie meet her parents, Louie is worried. Zena's father is a minister, and Louie doesn't know how he would conduct himself. He bribes Alex to come along with them to dinner in order to keep him from embarrassing himself.

At dinner, despite Alex's attempts to keep Louie from acting crude, Louie manages to offend Zena's parents. Yet the parents still act graciously towards him.

Louie believes the parents have accepted him, until Zena's mother tells him in private that if he tries to marry Zena, she'll have him killed. She makes him vow to keep that a secret.
