Lorraine, you want a young man, fine. Just make it a young black man. Why I could name ten fine, rich, young black men right off the top of my head.
Wait a minute while I get a pencil.

Michael comes to tell Dorothy that he is getting married. He also warns her that the bride is "kind of black", but when Lorraine comes there is another surprise in that she is twice his age. Dorothy is completely against it, and Lorraine's mother is against the wedding because she doesn't want her daughter to marry a "skinny white boy". They all want to stop the wedding, but then it comes out that Lorraine is pregnant and they accept it.
Good episode. I am just upset how they keep on dealing with different age relationships. When Blanche's father married a woman probably 3 times younger than him Blanche accepted it at the end because it made him happy. All relationships where the woman was older were looked down on and this case they just accept it because they have to. Which is sad, would be nice they had the same acceptance Blanche's dad got.
It had lots of funny moments though. Like Blanche and Rose coming in with mud masks looking like offensive blackfaces when Lorraine's family was there. And many many other things they said about race and age. I think in these days it would be a it over the line, but back then it was a pretty good natured and tolerant attitude.
