In Plain Sight – TV Series (2008–2012)
In an early episode – perhaps even in the pilot – U.S. Marshall Mary Shannon wants to relax next to her pool. She has tried to leave behind her boorish, hick background, but her mooching mother and sister have run away from a jammed-up situation to stay with her “awhile.”
Mary tries to be the adult in a relationship with a mother who has never grown up. Mary’s negotiating with Jinx (her mother) develops into a noisy squabble.
Jinx realizes that neighbors might hear their raised voices, and their poor behavior may reflect badly on them.
“Shhh.” Jinx tries to lower the noise level – which is really her own noise level.
“People will think that we’re trailer trash,” Jinx squawks.
Mary’s rejoinder is lame. The writers were having a bad day.
Mary’s telling response could have been, “But Mom, we are trailer trash.”
