Will it be Naomi or Mama?
21 April 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Vinton has just won a dinner for two at the Babylonian Gardens restaurant in Raytown which is one of the town's most popular and expensive restaurants as well. His problem is that it's for Mother's Day and he only has two tickets. Will it be his pregnant wife, Naomi, or his mother, Mama Harper? He comes up with a solution to solve both their problems but it was nice seeing Vinton get mad while his mother and wife fight for the right to get their free meal. Mother's Day is a big holiday on Mama's Family and always has been. Mama Harper at a Thai restaurant complete with a belly dancer and cushioned seats is quite entertaining. I enjoyed this episode and miss this show. I wished that they aired it again on television. I know it's not the best show that was ever made but it was certainly filled with memorable characters that we don't mind seeing again.
