It's time for Bebe and Cece's baptism, and Trudy and Oscar invite their families to visit. However, trouble rises when both Trudy and Oscar's family sides can't get along with each other.


Oscar becomes upset when Trudy takes the TV away because of her father as well as her mother being aware of the dust. Suga Mama feels the same way as Oscar but breaks his toe for complaining to her. Just then the Parker Family arrives with Dr. Vincent Parker and Maureen Parker glad to see Penny and Trudy Proud, but not Oscar Proud. They thought he and their daughter broke up. Suga Mama wasn't happy to see Maureen. Reuben Parker was friendly to Oscar and he brings him and his father out to see his awesome SUV that Oscar saw on the auto show last month. After checking out the cars cool brain functions, Ray Ray and his family came crashing into Reuben's SUV and Bobby Proud was in the trunk. Trudy was not happy that Oscar invited them without telling her.

As Ray Ray, Boonetta and Somone started arguing with Reuben, helping themselves to Leslie Parker's belongings and mouthing on Chanel Parker's leg. Later Semone and Ray Ray Proud, Jr. ate all the food at the dinner which upsets trudy so Oscar volunteers to pay for dinner at The Clam Cabin where there should be plenty of food to eat. As Chanel and Leslie ask about a waiter and utensils, the Proud Family laughs and explains that neither was necessary. Then a big net full of fish came dropping down on everyone and they all ate and started a food fight. Trudy and Penny were not pleased with this at all.

The next day in the Wizard Kelly Community Park, Oscar sets up a Proud Snax Stand with a cardboard stand of himself, he wanted Vincent to see that he doesn't any stupid operation, but Trudy's father dumps garbage on the stand leaving Oscar to follow him saying "That is not a trash can"! Penny was with her best friend Dijonay Jones sitting down on a bench sad and bummed out by her whole family fighting and arguing as they were playing Green Light, Red Light. Reuben accuses Boonnetta for moving when he said Red Light and Ray Ray steps in and corrects him about his wife and then she and Diana started arguing about her weight and then everyone started arguing more roughly. Dijonay was too busy looking at Penny's overweight 10 month old baby cousin Semone thinking by his size that he looks cute to fall in love. Meanwhile everyone participated in a game of football. The Prouds made the first touchdown and when the Parkers won the second round by using their dog Coco score a touchdown, Suga Mama knocks out Maureen with her elbow and with Ray Ray impressed with what Suga Mama did, he and Reuben engage in a fist fight and Oscar tells the kids to stay out of it as he enters the fight. After Dijonay leaves, Penny, Chanel and Ray Ray Jr. were able to put their differences aside as they all became embarrassed by their parents fighting each other recklessly on the field that they all decide to make a retreat to The Mall by driving off in Reuben's SUV and brought along a cardboard Oscar to avoid suspicion.
