Martha Comes to Town

Felicia tries to get out of a contest win which involves Martha Stewart staying with her, while Art, the volunteer, falls for the famous home diva, and gives her flowers he found on a grave.

Felicia is furious her husband entered her into a contest for the worst home maker. The winner gets Martha Stewart to live with them for the week to impart her wisdom on all things to do with home making. When the famous woman arrives, Art, the volunteer, falls instantly in love with her. So does the pugnacious Elmer Tiger, who just sees her money combining with his so he can grow richer. When Art presents flowers to Martha, she is captivated. Art doesn't tell her where he got them - from the cemetery. Incidentally, the floral arrangement had been bought by Elmer Tiger for his former girlfriend's funeral, and when he discovers that Art presented them to Martha, he's on a rampage to tell Martha where the flowers came from. Ashamed, Art hides, while Al, Brent, and Felicia try to shut up Elmer. Eventually, however, he gets to Martha. Instead of turning her away from Art, however, she thinks he's resourceful. Martha leaves - giving Art her contact information, and giving Felicia much-needed rest.
