Episode Summary

EDIT
Dilbert is working a new food source called the "tomeato" that may end world hunger. Marketing dismisses the idea, but Dilbert sells them on the idea of trying the product in what he believes is the famine-ridden country of Elbonia. To get there Dilbert is forced to visit the trolls in accounting to get his travel budget increased. In Elbonia the "tomeato" is planted and begins to grow quickly in the Elbonian mud. Unfortunately this throws Elbonia into a famine, since the mud was their food source. In addition, exposed to the air to long, the "tomeato" can become explosive, so Elbonia jumpstarts its economy by turning the "tomeato" into bombs. To get the Elbonians to eat the "tomeato" Dogbert calls in a force that cannot be denied, Dilmom.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Apparantly, Elbonians are less superstitious about having their photos taken in this episode, as we see numerous Elbonian photos, whereas in "The Elbonian Trip" in season 1, they believe cameras steal their souls.

      • Dogbert knew Dilbert when he was still living with his mother. If Dilbert is 35, and moved out of his parents at 18, then that menas that dogbert would have to be at least 17, way beyond the life expectancy for a dog.

      • Dilmom only puts one slice of the tomeato onto the grill. But when she puts it on the plate after being grilled, the whole block is grilled too.

      • In the scene where Wally is given a mitten as a non-monetary award from the lost and found, Loud Howard discovers that he is missing a mitten that is identical to the one that Wally is given. This is to imply that Wally's award is really Loud Howard's mitten, yet earlier in this scene Loud Howard is seen to be wearing both mittens at the same time that Wally is holding a mitten.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • If the glove fits, you must quit!: This is an allusion to the OJ Simpson Trial where it was said: It the glove doesn't fit you must acquit.
