  • Episode Description
  • From Showtime: Chris is flattered when the mayor of his hometown of Stockton, California, wants to rename a street, ‘Chris Isaak Avenue.' But his journalist girlfriend Stephanie, teases him about how much he enjoys the attention that being a celebrity brings. Chris disagrees, and propels them into their first lover's tiff. However, the trip to Stockton links Chris' past to the present, and opens his eyes to what's truly important. Yola complains to Chris that she's fed up dating self-absorbed weasels from the music industry. He offers to introduce her to Ted Thomas, a fireman from his hometown. Yola is hesitant until she sees the hunky firefighter posing half-naked in a Stockton Engine Company Forty-Nine fund raising calendar. Unhappily, after a few dates, she comes to realize that Ted's got a few celebrity issues of his own – even if they're only in his head. Anson has celebrity issues, too. When his latest squeeze, Tanya complains that the Planet Hollywood jacket Anson gave her is nylon instead of leather, he's pissed off that he's unable to get her the real thing. It takes Kenney to explain the facts of life – that there's a big difference from being in the band, and being the star of the band.moreless

    • Chris and Yola, discussing Yola meeting Chris' friend, fireman Ted Thomas: Chris: "You're gonna be in Stockton for the street naming ceremony, we'll all be together. You'll meet him, you'll pump his hand a little bit…" Yola: "All right, I'll pump his hand." Chris: "Okay, that's all I'm askin'!" Yola: "Okay!" Chris: "Any touching past the hand, that's between you and him."

    Trivia (1)

    • 1.  As Chris and company drive through the lush farmland of the Central San Joaquin Valley, we see lots of farm equipment, livestock, and rolls of hay.  That's lovely, however, hay is baled here, not rolled…  (Not a big deal, no, but rolled hay is definitely not something one sees around these parts every day.)  :-)

      2. After Chris receives his police badge from Mayor Roberts, he proceeds to pin it to his leather jacket, on the left side right below the collar.  He's still wearing it as he leads Kenney, Roly, and Anson off on a tour of Stockton.  In Chris' next scene, (one scene later,) as he's leading Kenney and Roly (we'd seen that Anson left the "tour" the scene before,) toward the Grand Avenue Music store, Chris is no longer wearing his coveted police badge…

      3.  As Chris enters the music store and chats with the proprietor, Mr. Strupman, we see that Chris' jacket is open (unbuttoned.)  In the next scene, as he's running away from the store (glancing back over his left shoulder, presumably in fear of "old man Strupman,") his jacket is closed and buttoned.  Granted, he could have done that as he fled, but since Mr. Strupman didn't have any kind words for our hero, I would doubt that he'd take the time, as he ran, to button up his jacket…

      4.  In the final scene, as Chris is pulled over by a California Highway Patrol Officer, the car is correct, (a black-and-white cruiser with the correct insignia on the door,) as is the general look of the uniform.  However, as the officer is writing up Chris' ticket, we see that the patch on his right shoulder says "State Trooper," when it should say "California Highway Patrol."
