Episode Summary

Jeannie gives Tony a mysterious candy from her mother called "Pipchicks". When it is discovered that the Pipchicks make Tony stronger, Tony tries to keep them a secret, but soon enough Dr. Bellows eats one and finds out their potential and insists that Tony make another batch for other astronauts. When Jeannie's mother gives Tony the recipe though, those pipchicks don't allow for strength but they allow the person to act out their inner fantasies and so the General, Dr. Bellows, and anyone else who has tried them go crazy and this causes havoc on the base.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Hilarious! (Review contains mild spoilers.)

    Jeannie forces Tony to try a new snack her mom made, called 'pipchicks'. This gives Tony the temporary side-effect of super strength. Tony, thinking he can keep it to himself, starts eating them at the office. Unfortunately, he drops some and word spreads about this treat.

    Tony, now compelled to make more, asks Jeannie for help. Jeannie in turn goes to her mother for the recipe. She gives it to her, who gives it to him. New pipchicks are made, and we are reminded why Tony and Jeannie's mom don't get along.

    I loved the plot twists in this episode, and the jokes stemming from the ingestion of the pipchicks all come out of left field. Only the 2nd episode in season 4, and this one is a 10/10, must-see comedy.moreless
