  • Episode Description
  • Dharma's parents arrive for their weekly yoga class only to find Dharma in tears because all her other students have deserted her for the popular self-defense class across the hall. Greg's efforts to cheer her up only get them evicted from Kitty's operatic fund raising evening. Clearing out her locker, Dharma curiously wanders into the self-defense class that turns out to be run by a wacky woman named Spyder, who is promoting herself with alarmist flyers about a massive increase in crime in the neighborhood. When Dharma protests that this is a lie, Spyder intimidates her physically, then invades a depressed Dharma's nightmare about breaking her non-violent principles and retaliating. When Dharma does attempt to remonstrate with Spyder, both she and Greg get their butts kicked.moreless

    • (after Spyder "warns" Dharma) Jane: I don't care if she is a martial arts instructor. A little antifreeze in her coffee and she's begging for the stomach pump just like the rest of us. Which is where we come in in our fake paramedic outfits. Greg: Why do you have fake paramedic outfits? Dharma: To get into concerts for free. Jane: Duh!

    • Greg: Now? Dharma: No, this isn't a sex dream. Greg: Then why are you dressed as Little Bo-Peep?
