Storyline

What was a bad idea in the first place -- tricking Eunice into a surprise birthday party at the Bigger Jigger (she thought Ed was taking her to a classy restaurant) goes downhill even faster when Eunice spots a poster of Congressional candidate Duke Reeves -- the high school hunk she had a crush on. Vint lets it slip that Duke Reeves actually came to the Harper house once to check on Eunice (she had fallen while chasing his car), but Mama had shooed him away. This leads to a massive cat fight, and BOTH Eunice and Mama punch out cops having beers at the bar, landing both of them in a holding cell with a prostitute. The hooker proves surprisingly sympathetic to Mama as she end Eunice each complain about being neglected by the other. Written by Peter Harris

Mama & Eunice in the Jug!
6 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the far better episodes regarding Mama's family, it's one of the most memorable. Anyway, Vint and Mama are at the Bigger Jigger Bar to surprise birthday girl, Eunice, and Ed. She was convinced that Ed was going to take her to the Babylonian Roof Garden, one of Raytown's top restaurants. He surprises her by taking his wife to the Bigger Jigger. They sing Happy Birthday Barbara not Eunice. All's fine until Vint sees a picture of Duke Reeves, the love of Eunice's life. When he starts recalling that Duke had stopped by at the house when Eunice was a lovesick teen obsessed with him, it gets ugly. Eunice and Mama end up in the local jail and befriended by Scarlet Dubois, a local prostitute, who has more sense than the two of them. I think this is one of the best Mama and Eunice episodes where they learn a little about something.
