Episode 103: Love Thy Privacy
After an awkward encounter proving that Sam is not in the least bit shy about his body, Linda asks him to put some clothes on. When Sam returns, Linda asks what he'd like for breakfast.
"How about an order of 'can you call before you come?'" Sam says.
"I'm sorry, what was that?" Linda says.
"I'm good. I'll just have a 'please, get the hell out of here' omelet with a large glass of 'you've got to be kidding me' juice," Sam says.
Moments after their banter is over, Sam realizes that Danny has given Linda a key to their apartment—and that she has no problem coming over unannounced.
Watch this scene.
Sam goes into Danny's room to confront him about getting the key back while Linda makes the boys breakfast, but Danny, citing the fact that his mother is going through a rough patch, won't do it.
Hattie overhears the discussion, and after learning from Drew and Floyd what Danny has done, advises to give the situation about a week.
"That daughter of mine...she'll drive a demon to drinking!" Hattie says.
When they find Linda, she is crying to the ending of a sad movie in which a husband has left his wife, resulting in her suicide. Danny knows he doesn't stand a chance at telling his mother the truth during such a vulnerable moment, no matter how hard Sam tries to convince him not to fall for it.
"Why are you here, Linda?" Floyd asks.
"I don't have much to do, so I come by and straighten up. Is that all right?" Linda says, giving Floyd the once-over. Danny jumps in, telling his mom it's fine, much to the chagrin of Sam, who smacks Danny on the knee.

Hattie refuses to talk to Linda for the boys, and she advises Danny on how he should deal with the situation.
"Baby, if somebody makes you feel uncomfortable, you just got to learn to say it! Just come out, and you just got to tell her," Hattie says. Just then, Linda comes down the stairs.
"Mom, we are young men, and we need a little more privacy. And I think the key was a bad idea," Danny says.
After confirming that this request was not just a result of walking in on a naked Sam earlier in the week, Linda agrees and gives Danny the key back. After she walks out of the room, both Sam and Danny rejoice in their victory by doing a cheer and simultaneously spelling out G-O-O-D.

When Sam asks why they are dumb, Hattie says, "Because y'all got the key, but you didn't tell her not to come over no more!"
