Susan's mother, Sophie, shows up unexpectedly and immediately gets into a fender-bender with Mike. Now that he's met her ditzy mom, Mike tells Susan that suddenly a lot of questions he had about her are answered.
Sophie reveals she's left her boyfriend, Morty, because he "shoved" her. Susan is reluctant to believe the boyfriend is abusive, due to her mother's tendency to exaggerate things. So Susan tries to get her to reconcile with Morty. But the reconciliation goes sour, and Susan is stuck with her mother -- for now.
