Review Quotes


As Dre is preparing for his mom's visit, Rainbow expresses concern over her passive/aggressive way of putting her down. Dre tries to ease her concern to no avail. 

Rainbow is upset when Grandma Ruby arrives with some pretty inappropriate gifts for the children and then almost immediately comments on the dust in the house.

Dre finds himself caught in the middle between the two women and tries his best to help them get along. He brings both of them to a place that's special to both Rainbow and Ruby and the plan seems to be working when they bond over Dre's unsanitary habits. 

The peace does not last long however when Rainbow comes home to discover Ruby is styling Diane's hair. Rainbow explains she's upset because Diane is not old enough to care for her hair herself and Rainbow prefers to style it her way. 

Junior has a crush on a girl at school and asks Zoey for advice. She decides to use her popularity to help Junior get a date with an older girl instead. At first it appears to work until Junior returns from the date and informs her that she only wanted him to edit her audition video for The Bachelor. 

Dre turns to Zoey for advice and she tells him that with women only one can be his number one at a time. Dre explains to his mother that Rainbow will always be his number one and Rainbow overhears, forgiving him.
