Storyline

Betty Sternin, Lilith's mother, is coming to Boston for a visit. Frasier is dreading the thought as Betty is not the most easy going person in the world and Lilith cannot stand up to her mother. Frasier vows not to argue with Betty during her visit. Even Betty gets the best of Carla. Since Betty missed her daughter's wedding, she wants Frasier and Lilith to renew their vows. Betty takes control of the situation. Lilith, feeling steamrolled into doing something she doesn't want to do, has to get up the nerve to stand up to her mother for the first time in her life. Meanwhile, Sam finagles a trip to Atlantic City with Debbie, a dumb blond he meets in the bar. Norm asks Sam to make a large bet for him, which comes through. Rebecca and Sam hope Norm will apply his large windfall to his ever growing bar tab. Subtle hints don't seem to be working. Less than subtle hints don't seem to be working. But Norm has his own plans for the money. Written by Huggo

Goofs

When Lilith and her mother Betty first arrive at Cheers, Betty asks Frasier where the bathroom is. As Frasier directs Betty, Lilith is standing by the front door. When the camera moves from Betty back to Frasier, Lilith is suddenly down the steps, standing next to the bar, at least 20' from where she had been. See more »

Cliff Clavin: How come black 17, Norm?
Norm Peterson: Ah, well, 17 is because Vera and I were married on the seventeenth. And black is because Vera and I were married on the seventeenth.

Smotherly Love (#10.20)
27 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lilith's mother came over to Boston. Frasier tries his best not to have a fight with her, and it is hard as she wants a wedding reenactment since she missed the original one. The Cranes don't want it but they end up going through with it, only right before ceremony Frasier does something right and Lilith finally tells her mother to shut up.

Another great episode with the Cranes. Frasier's smile that he was putting on was hilarious. And I loved how Lilith looked. I thinks she is always beautiful and like her I hate make up, but she was looking so absolutely gorgeous! Still her outburst and her mother's reaction were awesome.
