Episode Summary

Pops' Campaign
Pops is used to slinging hash. But when he runs for city council against an unscrupulous politician, he winds up slinging mud instead -- with Shawn and Marlon as his campaign managers. ``Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.'' veteran Ronnie Schell appears in this new episode. He plays a politician known to be corrupt, and when he announces his candidacy for another city-council term, Pops (John Witherspoon) decides to oppose him. Marlon and Shawn become their father's campaign managers and consider devious tactics.moreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (At the debate, Pops is asked about the Manhattan Madam trial, but giving his speech on the Statue of Liberty)
        Pops: Well, let me tell you something about her. She may be old and weathered, but is this how we treat someone who has greeted tourists and sailors all these years?
        Shawn: (to Marlon) You gave him the wrong answer! You gave him the answer to the Statue of Liberty question.
        Pops: Tell me there isn't a man here who hasn't gotten some joy by going up into her rusty old insides. It's one of New York's truly great bargains. Just a few dollars for a memory that lasts a lifetime!
        Shawn: Psst! Coo-coo! (to Pops) The cards are mixed up.
        Pops: Are you sure? I thought that was a good answer.

      • (Shawn and Marlon make fun of Pops suit)
        Pops: This is my lucky suit. I wore this suit on my first date with your Mama. Bang! Bang! Bang!
        Shawn: Pops!
        Marlon: Ha! You was tearin' it up! (gets a look from Shawn) Oh, that's Ma you're talkin' about. My bad.

      • (Pops says he's never been to the Statue Of Liberty)
        Marlon: I can't believe you've never been to the Statue of Liberty. Don't you know that's the world's tallest building? That's where they shot King Kong.

      • Dee: My manicurist said that McCay has been seen with a different woman each day of the week.
        Marlon: Eight different women?! Yo, he keep that up, he's gonna catch a DVD, yo.

      • (McCay, during his press conference, says that they have to create more jobs, after Pops tells him he threw all the small business men out)
        Dee: Yeah! Good ones! Firemen! Teachers!
        Marlon: Lap dancers!
