  • Dorothy's son Michael is getting married to Lorraine. Problems begin when Michael tells his mother that Lorraine is "kinda black." When Lorrain's family meets Michael, Lorrain's mother refuses to see her daughter married to some "skinny white boy."

    This episode is hilarious! It brings to light many issues that may arise when couples are different, especially when it comes to age and race. Despite these issues being sensitive, this episode deals with them in a lighthearted way. Laughter is unavoidable when Sophia walks through the front door and sees both families facing each other in the living room. Her sole presence alerts the audience that they are in for a laugh. As always, Rose manages to tickle the funny bone as she attempts to keep the peace between the families. Blanche also contributes to the laughter by offering an answers to mystifying questions such as "What could a woman in her 40's possibly have in common with a boy in his 20's?" and "Is it true what they say about black men in bed?" Truly a classic!
