Mama's Family It Takes Two to Watusi (1983–1990)

The title of this episode is an allusion to the quote by biologist Stephen E. Jones, "It Takes Two Tango and Three to Make a Race."

Naomi's best friend, Luann Fayette, and co-worker from Food Circus had just gotten through a divorce. She lives in a trailer park in Raytown. Luann has been spending so much time at the Harpers since her divorce that she has become a guest at dinner by Naomi's invitation. Jennifer Richards who plays Luann Fayette creates a complicated lonely attractive divorcée. When Naomi sets her up with one of her husband's friends, he can't make it so they suggest having her young nephew Bubba go miniature golfing with them. Of course, Mama Harper is not too pleased with that idea and she tags along with Iola. I liked this episode because there is some attraction between young man, Bubba, and mature divorced Luann. It's still a charming memorable episode and played well by the cast.
