Get More: Exclusive, Video

Thursday’s one-hour season finale of Raising Hope (Fox, 9/8c) features not only Burt’s bizarre bar mitzvah — more on that in a sec — but also the reunion of longtime friends/actresses Cloris Leachman and Shirley Jones. And the following exclusive first look gives you a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the festivities.

The Partridge Family matriarch guest stars as Burt’s mom (alongside The Fall Guy‘s Lee Majors as his dad), who comes bearing some surprising news for her son: He’s actually Jewish! So the clan gathers to watch Burt officially become a man… a few decades late.

While it remains to be seen how Maw Maw gets on with her counterpart during the festivities, Leachman and Jones — who became pals through their hubbies — are definitely happy to be working together on their third project.
