Classic Episode!

When Bubba come home drunk and causing trouble, Mama Harper gives him a hard punishment. It's not until Iola explains about Thelma's experience with Eunice years ago. In this episode, Thelma and Eunice were scheduled to perform a mother-daughter act at the mothers and daughters luncheon at the church. Iola played amazingly unrecognizable by the actress, Nikki Cox, as a young girl who needs Thelma. Meanwhile older Eunice has already planned to be used and abused by Duke Reeves and his friends. They already have her making their sandwiches for the picnic. The actress, Heather Kerr, who plays Eunice does a brilliant job. Unfortunately because Vint's a boy, he can't go to the luncheon. Anyway, Eunice is brought by Duke Reeves, the love of Eunice's life, and she's wasted away. Thelma has to get her sober enough for their solo. Thelma sends Duke Reeves away. When Eunice sees Duke gone, she blames her mother for sending the love of her life away.
