Episode Recap

One of Fred's customers, a shady salesman for a drug called methusadol, sells Fred a bottle of pills that he says will make him look younger and youthful again. (Methusadol is a pun on Methuselah, the man from the Bible who lived more years than anyone else on record.) Fred then takes these pills for $100 a bottle and he psychologically thinks that he is getting younger and that the pills are a breakthrough. When he takes the pills to Evelyn, she calls for a investigation on them. Sadly, the pills prove a scam, and she must now tell him the bad news.
