Quiet in the Courtroom!
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Mama's vacuum cleaner is broke, she uses her daughter-in-law to vacuum the rug which is a family heirloom. It also turns out that a key which belong to Naomi was on the rug which ruined her vacuum cleaner and the rug as well. Well, Naomi and Mama decide to take it to court. Michael Constantine is memorable as the judge who must decide who is right and wrong. Of course, Mama makes references to Judge Wapner and People's Court and offhanded comments. Naomi uses her husband Vint to testify on her behalf. I loved it when Aunt Fran makes a confession to the judge regarding the tag on the rug. Of course, nothing works out as it should for everybody involved but it's still one of the funniest episodes in the series.
