Plot summary

Nick opens The Claw early for his visiting mother, who has come to see his purchase of The Claw. She wants him to come back to Florida despite his protests.

Later that afternoon, Nick serves his mom orange juice. His friend from varsity was shot in a park when a drug deal went wrong, but the family thinks it’s a case of mistaken identity. He assures her that won’t happen to him, with Millicent reminding him of his arrest and the realities of the police. He wants her to get to know Horseshoe Bay and George, volunteering George as their tour guide. She shows Millicent the museum and she remarks on how much she likes the artifacts, thinking her students will find it interesting. Nick searches for an employee to ask about the artifacts, while Millie and George talk. They return to The Claw and Nick introduces his mother to Nancy. She is appreciative of Nancy and her family, gushing over Nancy much to George's discomfort.

The next night, Millie overhears the Drew Crew talking about a man who wants to kill Nick.

After the ordeal, they return to The Claw and Millie is cooking when George enters. They cook together and she gives George her blessing to be with Nick by teaching her Nick’s favorite dish.
