About Janet's motherEdit

When Fred decides to try to break the world's record for going the most consecutive hours without sleep, to try to impress Janet's mother (also to Lamont's objections), who was visting from Oakland, he already had not slept for 4 straight days; when Mrs. Gordon, a schoolteacher who was in town to receive an award from Education Magazine for writing an essay on "How to Discipline Problem Children", arrives and then is told by Janet of Fred's insominiacal endeavor, she is quite impressed saying to Fred "It's quite an undertaking!"

Mrs. Gordon then offers "tough discipline" support in attempt to keep the sleep deprived Fred from dozing off by responding, "You're so thoughtful, so warm, so kind, so off your duff! I did'nt write a paper on discipline for keep moving...Left! Right! Left!"
