Trivia

Aunt Effie's last name is given as Harper (Mama's married name), her and the Mama's relationship revealed as that of sisters-in-law. In a previous episode, Effie's last name is Crowley (Mama's maiden name) and she refers to Mama as a cousin. This seeming discrepancy could be resolved as follows: Effie Crowley, born to one of Mama's father's brothers, married a brother of Mama's husband Carl Harper, making cousin Effie also Mama's sister-in-law.

Be ready for Mama's girls!

Aunt Effie needs to exercise according to her potbelly chain-smoking doctor. Mama has some suggestions but they don't work until Iola brings by tap-dancing shoes of her mother who can't because the class runs during her soap opera. Effie remind Thelma of her tap dancing days. With interest, they decide to enroll in the tap-dancing class for the senior ladies at the center. They find out that the teacher Bambi offers a few steps and leaves. They learn that insurance companies think tap-dancing senior ladies are a liability. Mama takes over the class and soon it's Mama's Girls on stage. Unfortunately, they learn that the insurance won't cover them tap dancing and wants to close down Mama's Girls. Well, let Mama handle it.
