Bubba Joining the Army Not Without Mama!
28 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bubba Higgins is upset because Melanie Noble, the girl he was going out with, told her parents that Bubba was in juvenile hall and her father prohibited her from going out with him. Meanwhile Vint welcomes his old friend from the army in town. They go out celebrating one night and suddenly Bubba agrees to join the army without Mama's permission. Of course, Mama has to find a way to get her grandson out of another fine mess. She does by going out of her way to the army recruiting headquarters and revealing the truth about Bubba's past to the officer. It's not a great episode but they pull it off as best as they can with the writing.
