Storyline

Debra's mother, Lois, suggests to Raymond that she will throw a surprise birthday party for her daughter and Ray won't have to lift a finger. Debra senses something is afoot and Ray spills the beans, but Debra wants a Chinese banquet instead. Ray tries to convince his mother-in-law to change the theme of the party, never disclosing to her or to anyone that it's no surprise - Debra knows all about it. Inevitably, all is revealed when Debra arrives home to a houseful of guests and embarrasses herself, her husband and disappoints her mother, who wanted, more than anything, to surprise her daughter.
