Episode Summary

Episode 15

Segment 1: Rock & Roll Ears
Lionel is a music shop owner and a former rock star. All of the loud music over a prolonged period of time left Lionel hard of hearing. One day two teenage boys go into the shop. One of the boys tries out a guitar and tells Lionel he doesn't know anything about rock and roll. Lionel then asks if he can have the guitar, in order to demonstrate his expertise. As he is playing the two teens are in awe of his excellence. When he finishes he tells them he learned to play that way from Jimi Hendrix. As the two boys are leaving one of them stumbles backward into a drum set. Lionel says, "Maybe you should play the drums." They run out of the store, embarrassed. Pride gets the best of the one who stumbled into the drum set, so he plans his revenge. At night the two are staked outside the music shop. One says to the other, "We're going to take what's left of his hearing." They set up a huge amplifier outside the door. As Lionel closes shop and opens the door he sees it. They then turn up the volume. It exceeds Lionel's comfort level, so he covers his ears. They steadily increase the volume until the windows of the shop break as a result of the extreme decibel level. Lionel falls to the floor and both of his hearing aids have an electrical shock. Lionel then passes out. The boys go into the store. One of them thinks Lionel is dead and feels sorry for him. The other one yells, "He's not dead, he's just deaf. Isn't that right, old man?" Lionel awakens and says, "You don't have to yell, I can hear just fine." He starts laughing and the two boys leave.
