* DontMakeMeTakeMyBeltOff: Trying to teach Troy a lesson about respecting and "cherishing" family, Britta says something [[ValuesDissonance she would consider complimentary but which "Nana" considers offensive]]. Nana orders her to get a switch, which Britta does. Britta seems to think that the switch was for striking her hand. Nana quickly corrects her ("I ain't no nun!"). She bends over--even though Troy tells her she doesn't have to--and pulls down her pants. She realizes very quickly she doesn't know what she's gotten herself into.
