Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Martha Raye returns as Mel's overbearing mother Carrie Sharples. With Mel (Vic Tayback) laid up by another bad injury, Carrie insists upon helping out in the diner's kitchen. This "can it get any worse?" situation soon does get worse--and how!--when it turns out that Carrie's chicken pies are attracting far more customers than Mel's chili ever has!
