As the rest of the series shows, Hey Dude has it's ups and downs, and "Cowboy Ernst" was no execption. It starts off like any HD ep would, with something trival that only affects a minor part of the ep, with Melody doing a personallty quiz. As expected, something slighty unlikely happens,within which Melody, Danny, and Brad getting decent scores, with Ted only getting about 67% percent.
Escaping that part, we go to Mr.Ernst's office, where he's on the phone dealing with *gasp* selling the ranch. Another basic part of HD is wacthing how the kids react to a sceneraio like this. Before hand, Buddy hears how Mr.E always wanted to be a cowboy. Buddy then tells the kids about this, so they decide to come up with a series of obstacles to have him live his dream.
Of course, those who've seen HD before at least once will feel that this is really familar. Well then, you're obviosuly not a fan of the show, because this is how the show rolls. I picked this one at random because it's a good example. There really isn't much to say after that.
