Episode Summary

Uncle Sam, Jr. I

After Jerry rambles on for a while about his disturbing superstitions, Barth announces the return of Vernon "Uncle Sam, Jr." Taylor. This time, his tirade starts out talking about the Frost/Nixon interview and then veers off into a stream of strange unrelated topics before concluding his time in the spotlight with a Benny Goodman themed horn solo. Next, Dr. Arthur Shack, of the Shack Shock Center, presents his newest teaching method: electric shock aversion therapy. He demonstrates this new technique on a volunteer and winds up repeatedly shocking him when he can't name the capital of Afghanistan. Candy Lee Hargrove of Fernwood's Fascinating Females returns to complain about her gynecologist and wishes there was a female gynecologist in Fernwood. Barth, Vernon and Happy end the show performing C.C. Rider. *Possible out of sequence error: episode dialogue indicates this aired as Episode 13.
