Overworked and feeling the strain of being lead lion, Larry takes advantage of a bad landing during practice to over-emphasize a leg injury, giving him a week of bed rest. However, when his blissful time off is interrupted by Sarmoti's bitterness, the exhausted lead lion slips his surly father-in-law a medicated meatball in the hope of quieting the African lion.moreless

  • A really funny episode taking on drug rehab, this episode finally allows Larry and Sarmoti to get on together - until the drugs wear off.

    10
    When Larry feels burnt out from work, he manages to fake a broken leg and get a week off from work. However, this doesn’t work with Sarmoti who thinks Larry’s too lazy to get out of bed in the morning, unless there’s meatballs on the table. Fed up with his attitude, he drugs Sarmoti with his medicated meatballs which makes him more sociable to everyone else. Kate notices her father’s unusually good mood and finds out that Larry has been drugging him, and becomes angry at Larry’s method of dealing with her father until he brings out one of his typical curmudgeonly remarks when the drug wears off, and she agrees to give them to him. But when he runs out of meatballs to drug him with and he tries to steal some more pills. However, Siegfried and Roy find them among the pills and whisk them off to Rehab to sort them out. However, Sarmoti might be missing the biggest moment of his life thanks to Larry’s little slipup, and he certainly isn’t going to give him an easy time for it.
