SEASON 1, EPISODE 118 | AIRED ON 07/24/13
Linda has the bright idea to celebrate Hattie's 75th birthday by throwing her a surprise party. Floyd tries to warn Linda against this idea because he feels it would be too dangerous, but she goes forward with the party despite Floyd's objection.
The decorations and guests are all in place when Hattie walks through her front door and they surprise her—but she surprises everyone else when, startled, she instinctively pulls her handgun and shoots three rounds into the living room. Fortunately, no one gets hurt. Later, Hattie explains the necessity of having her pistol when Marianna objects to guns in general.
