Why do they do this?
3 September 2008 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

I don't know why they didn't do the senior prom episode before Bubba's graduation. Regardless, this show seems to have some episodes that go out of order and this is one of them. Iola's niece, Vernette, is visiting Raytown for the week and their painting the town red. Bubba tries talking to her but he gets mostly silence. Vernette has a crush on Bubba and it's obvious. When his original prom date cancels out on him, Bubba is in a fine mess. Thelma and Iola get an idea of having Vernette be Bubba's date for the prom. They get her dressed and treat her like Cinderella. Then when Bubba's date decides to go with him, he has a problem with two dates. Vernette who is pleasant, nice, shy, and attractive in her way while Bubba's date is utterly sexual but undesirable as she cares for nobody but herself.
