Episode cast overview:


Margaret O'Keefe, Cliff's mail carrier girlfriend living in Canada, has come back to Boston wanting to rekindle her relationship with Cliff. Cliff also wants to do so, but he isn't thinking marriage just yet. The biggest hurdle in the relationship is that Ma Clavin and Margaret have never met. When Cliff tells Ma about Margaret, Ma is hurt - she feels like Cliff wants to replace her with another woman. But Ma and Margaret do meet, and after an initial coolness between them, Ma and Margaret get along famously. They get along so well that Ma proposes to Margaret for Cliff and Margaret accepts, without Cliff even being there. Ma and Margaret announce this news to the gang at the bar, but Cliff doesn't yet want to get married. He will have to tell both Margaret and Ma, the latter who may be the more difficult person to tell. In doing so, Cliff and Ma demonstrate who wears the pants in the Clavin household. Meanwhile, Rebecca and Sam are still trying to have a baby. It's been two months ... Written by Huggo

Ma's Little Maggie (#10.5)
24 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Cliff's girlfriend Margaret O'Keefe comes back from Canada and he introduces her it his mother. She is first not to thrilled but then they get along so much that Cliff's mom proposes to Margaret and she says "yes". Cliff is not too happy and tells Margaret then he wants to wait and propose on his own.

Oh I love episodes with Cliff's mom. And Margaret was not as bad as when she first appeared so this is quiet a good episode. Them three wondering around talking about trivia was too cute, as well as Frasier's hilarious comment that he now sees Cliff as surprisingly well adjusted. And the proposal to be her daughter in law was something. Indeed some very extraordinary characters that are very unique and interesting to watch. Just like Lilith one wants to stay on track of the development.
