Episode: 305- Stranded In Space
(Tom is conducting an impromptu baking
Tom: Now, ladle in a
heaping bagful of delicious Nestle Toll House Morsels, and
then... (Crow enters, dressed in his jammies, clutching a
stuffed animal) ...Hi Crow!
Crow: Oh... oh,
man... I had a nightmare... I dreamt Joel was takin' me on a
father-son fishing trip, and Mom made us sammiches and
stuff... and cake, and we had just finished loading up the
station wagon with minnows and stuff, when I noticed Joel
was wearing nothing but a Christian Dior bra-and-panty

then I started screaming "No, Joel! I don't have the legs
for that" and I screamed and he said "Oh yes you do!" and
then I said "No I don't! Stay away from me! Stay away from
me!" And he started chasin' me around the station wagon, and
then Mom came out with a clown suit... and then... and then
I woke up. What're ya doin'?
Tom: Oh, I'm
making a delicious taste treat, Crow! Four dozen fresh Toll
lemme help. Can I help? I wanna help!
okay... you can grease those cookie sheets. And don't use
the butter, it'll burn!
Tom: Hey you
know, Crow -- your little fishing dream reminds me of Ward E

the Sunday paper that's been sitting in the sun too long...
you know, that inky, stink.. uck... smell... eeyuck!
Crow: Yeah, yeah,
but no, nonono -- Ward E is that gross feeling ya get when
you push down the garbage, and something wet and unknown
squirts on ya!? Eeuw!
Tom: Fine, yes...
but how about when you're having a salad, and that bacon bit
seems a LITTLE too hard to be a bacon bit, and so you take
it out, and it looks just a little too much... like a
TOENAIL! Ugh... bleah!
rich... creamy... Ward E is like sittin' in a public
bathroom, and someone turns the light out! Eeeugh!
nauseated): Well, how 'bout
when you make a sammich, and you're THIS close to taking a
bite, when you notice the bread's got GREEN FUR all over the
Crow: How about
when you find yourself absent-mindedly fingering a wad of
gum on the bottom of a theater chair? Ugh!
Hardened or wet?
(Joel enters, wearing a Christian Dior bra-and-panty
Joel: Hey -- I
can't believe you guys started without me!
Get him away from me! Aaaahh! (Crow, seeing Joel, flees in

Tom: I dunno. Hey
