Episode Summary

No-Frills Hospitals

In Rocket to Stardom,15-year-old gymnast, and youngest of the Dunbar girls, Penny Dunbar, trampolines herself into the rafters. The show's new Security Guard, Garth Gimble, Sr. and his stupid dog, Louie, fail to get her down and she is forced to remain there until help arrives. Dr. Richard Osgood returns to tout his latest solution to high-priced medical care; the No-Frills Hospital, whose motto is "Let Them Do It Themselves." Lastly, from the mayor's Committee on the Conservation of Energy, Bud Prize offers dubious conservation tips such as take a shower with your dirty dishes or bathe while wearing several layers of clothing. Prize then rails on Dr. Osgood for his past diagnoses of "terminal underbite" and then sings praises for the "chinodontist" he found who was able to provide him with a corrective chin cup that he's been wearing for the past three years. The fire department finally arrives to rescue Penny.
