    • In this episode, Ricky admits eating the most oysters because he has "more R's in his name than anyone else." His comment is based on the well-known phrase: "Oysters 'r' in season." Traditionally, oysters are best eaten during months that contain the letter 'r' (September through April) because they are most flavorful during that time.
