Storyline

Gary's parents have moved to Miami Beach, which Gary believes means that he can spread his proverbial wings and be the person he wants to be without especially his mother's scrutiny. But Rhoda and Brenda soon realize that Gary's mother did many if not most of his day-to-day chores, so that Gary has no idea how to do such basic tasks as shop for food, cook, or even turn on his oven. They also quickly learn that Gary really has no intention of learning how to do these things if he can find other people to do them for him, such as Rhoda and Brenda, who become but don't want to be his surrogate mothers. As Rhoda mentions the problem to Jack, Jack thinks he knows how to get them out of their problem, namely by giving Gary the ultimate overbearing mother that he would never want: Ida. Their plan has some unexpected consequences. Written by Huggo
