Laoma is the only character Kahn has complete affection for and cares most about. While Laoma has immigrated to America from Laos, she has no reason for seeking betterment of her life as the rest of the Souphanousinphone family does. Instead, she wishes to be a housewife and mend the house, only Minh does not allow. While in Arlen , Laoma is uninterested in looking for a hobby, but cleaning and taking care of others, even going to the point of going over to the Hills to take care of the house. While Kahn sees Laoma's love for cleaning as meaningless labor, Minh sees it as an opportunity to rid of her for her own personal time. She eventually falls in love with Bill, after cleaning the house and caring for him, as she is a widow and without a spouse like Bill. Kahn finds this relationship repulsive and had temporarily broken up the two by claiming Laoma had an affair with Harrison Schmitt.
Although it is implied Laoma has moved to a retirement home, Laoma is seen giving household tips to Minh over the phone in the episode "Bystand Me". However, an interesting fact about Laoma in the episode is that she is heard shouting at Minh in Laotian and seems to tease her more, opposed to being patient as seen from "Maid in Arlen". It also seems to appear that Peggy does not remember Laoma, despite her being cared for by Laoma.
