Mama's Problem Child!
30 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the Harpers get home from their weekly church service, they talk about the boy causing all the trouble. It turns out to be Reverend Meecham's grandson, Eugene. The Meechams played by Earl Boen and Anne Haney stop by to ask the Harpers to look after Eugene for the afternoon while the Reverend goes to the hospital. Eugene can't go because he gets in trouble. During his afternoon at the Harper house, Mama has to tolerate him drawing on the tablecloth, his insults, and his desire to eat at a fast food restaurant. When he dumps tabasco sauce and ruins the family dinner, Mama is trying not to break down and spank him. Things only get worse when Eugene has to spend the night when his grandfather has broken his leg at the hospital. The boy who played Eugene would get nominated for his performance. It's one of the better episodes.
