Vicki Lawrence in a dual role as Mama and ghostly Grandma Crowley
26 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Exceptionally funny episode has Vicki Lawrence doing double-duty as Mama AND her dead mother, Grandma Crowley, who comes back from beyond to carp on Thelma's lack of cooking skills, parenting skills, and to warn her not to sell her jewel-encrusted brooch (Naomi says, "Mel Roop's Jewelry Store had a whole display of this kind of junk, and some of those pieces were going for $1000!"). Some very funny scenes involving the family with the ghost of Grandma, whom only Mama can see, with Iola giving Thelma some practical advice which she got out of Modern Psychology magazine. Turns out Grandma's diamond-and-ruby brooch is just garnets and glass, but the show ends on a warm note, with Bubba getting his trip to Oswald Caverns ("Isn't that where them teenagers went in and never come out??") and Thelma overcoming her demons enough to buy her first pair of designer jeans--which we never get to see!!
