Quantum Leap – The Americanization of Machiko [2.3]

Sam becomes sailor Charlie MacKenzie, who is returning to his small town in Ohio with his new and traditional bride from Japan, Machiko.  Charlie and Machiko face opposition from various people in town, including one racist veteran of World War II, and especially from Charlie’s own mother Lenore.  Things come to a point where Lenore’s insensitivity almost leads to Machiko’s death, but in the end she is saved and Lenore accepts her.
