Episode Summary

EDIT
Dilbert feels charitable but he is also critical of where the money actually goes. When he badmouths the charity carnival, the Pointy-Haired Boss puts him in charge of it. Dilbert is also critical of Alice's morality, which sends her into a tailspin that makes her homeless. Soon the office is overrun with organizations looking for donations, including urchins collecting for Dogbert's "Canine Apathy" charity. Dilbert makes some comments at a charity dinner that makes everyone there no longer feel like giving.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • After the Pointy Haired Boss is pummelled off the Dunkin' Booth, and Dilbert dives in to save him, the board the Boss was sitting on has vanished.

      • At the start of the show, when The Pointy-Haired Boss hits the fly, he would have had to put a new nail up then to move over his plaque, not at the end. There would have been a nail there from the previous plaque.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Dogbert: I'll bet you twenty dollars it doesn't feel good to give.
        Dilbert: You're on.
        Dogbert: To settle the bet, give me forty dollars and tell me if it feels good.
        Dilbert: That wouldn't feel good.
        Dogbert: O.k. then, give me twenty dollars because you lost the bet.
        Dilbert hands him the money
        Dilbert: Did i just make a bet that would cost me twenty dollars wether i won or lost?

      • Pointy-Haired Boss: I've been date raped by Dilbert.

      • Dilbert: You don't even know where the money goes!
        Wally: I don't know where pudding comes from but I still eat it.
        Dilbert: That is such a BAD analogy!
        Alice: Thank you, Wally. Now I can never eat pudding again!

      • Dilbert: I hate that carnival. All the money raised at the carnival is spent paying for the carnival. And it's based on the premise of cheap thrills and cheating, hardly charitable concepts.

      • Girl Selling Cookies: I'm selling overpriced cookies that taste like styrofoam. How many cartons should I put you down for?

      • Dilbert: On behalf of my boss, who didn't care enough to be here, thank you for this lovely plaque. And if you don't mind me saying so, what exactly was the lesson we were supposed to get from this drugged out basketball player? (audience gasps) I mean didn't he just teach us that if you become a drug addict, life will turn out fine? (audience mumbles) It seems to me that this whole charity concept is nothing but an exercise in the redistribution of guilt. I'm all for helping the disadvantaged but aren't most of your funds going toward administrative costs? Wouldn't it be more effect, most cost-effective, more impactful if each of us just helped one other person? But I digress, thank you all for this lovely plaque for my boss. I'm sure you could have fed a family of four for what it costs to make it.
