Episode Summary

Tom Waits

What luck! While passing through Fernwood, Tom Waits' car happens to breaks down. Stranded and with no means of escape, the singer has no choice but to accept the invitation to appear on the show. Appearing sufficiently intoxicated (most likely to make this forced appearance as painless as possible) he ironically performs The Piano Has Been Drinking. Bud Prize discusses his plans to bring more tourism and merchants to Fernwood. Barth competes against a mannequin of President Jimmy Carter in a talent competition to see which one of them is the biggest TV star.
