Storyline

Vinton Harper's scheming buddy Claude Cainmaker,talks Vint into a marriage scheme,involving a woman from Portugal who hasn't registered as a citizen. "Electric Company" alum Luis Avalos,plays her brother who has offered to pay both Vint and Claude for their participation. Since immigration checks up on marriages between U.S. citizens and people from other countries,Vint's bride to be has to be moved into Mama's house. Thelma (Mama) is outraged that her son is being taken for a fool and reminds him that "60 Minutes" did a show on how what he's doing is illegal and could wind him up in jail. Will Vinton go through with it? (This episode,clearly,was produced before "The Wedding",since Naomi is seen still living next door and Vint is single.) Written by happipuppi13

This episode was aired after Vint and Naomi's wedding. Regardless, Vint is divorced, broke, and living with Mama Harper and his old maid, Aunt Fran, and his two kids in the basement of their home. Vint's friend, Claude Cainmaker, hatches a plan. He's also the same man that helped get Vint lose his home and move back home with Mama. Some friend, huh? He speaks with a Portugeuse man who wants his niece Zaida to get married so she can get a green card. Claude thinks of nothing better than asking Vint. When Vint goes home, he doesn't tell Mama about his upcoming nuptials. He soon realizes that he's been had by Claude when the plan goes awry thanks to Mama.
