Latka is excited about his mother's visit, but when Louie refuses to let him take the day off, he asks Alex to entertain her. Alex takes Latka's mother to Mario's and later to Radio City Music Hall, and it becomes evident that they are very attracted to one another. The next day, Alex tells Elaine that after the show, Latka's mother asked to go back to Alex's place for a drink and they ended up sleeping together, after she became an ""animal"" and tore his clothes off. Latka then approaches Alex, having learned of this event, and happily calls him ""Daddy."" Latka's mother then arrives and explains to Latka that she was just lonely and had no intention of marrying Alex. Latka is upset, but forgives his mother, just not Alex. Alex later apologizes to Latka and begs his forgiveness, eventually gaining it when Latka suggests they practice his country's age old tradition of pretending the event never happened.
