Mama's Family: The Wedding (2)

After an interesting and odd wedding day, Vint and Naomi are finally married. They decide to take the kids with them after all, which leaves Mama to enjoy the peace and quiet of her house once again. The silence is short lived though when Vint and Naomi come back and tell Mama that they have to move back in because the job that they would've gotten in Arizona was a scam.

Episode Notes
This episode truly was a family affair. Not only does the entire NBC cast appear, as noted, but it was written by a team of husband and wife, Jim Evering and Dorothy Van.

Though she received Story and/or Story Editor credits on other episodes she was in as "Aunt Effie", this is the only episode Dorothy Van received Writer credit for (and even that was shared with Jim Evering) that had Effie in it.

Shown as the 7th episode in syndication.

This is Earl Boen's first appearance as 'Reverend Meachum.'

This episode is the only one to feature the whole cast from the NBC run.
