## Episode Summary

AIRED:
Skits in this Episode: "Odd Number Strike" Newsanchor Eugene Gummm covers the odd number strike. Number 107 insists it is because the odd numbers prefer to be called uneven. Gummm then interviews some people negatively affected by the odd number strike: chef Julia Kitchen, rock star Mick Stagger, a race car driver, and a city bus driver. Gumm then promises to keep covering the odd number strike because his office is on an "uneven"-numbered street. "Animation" A two row pattern of blocks shows odd and even numbers. "Math Rap - Music Video" Kurtis Blow raps to his students about mathematics. "But Who's Counting?" The Kurkendalls from San Simeon, California compete against the San Simeons from Kurkendall, California. The object is to place five numbers that come out on a number wheel to obtain the largest possible five digit number. In the first round, the number wheel comes up with a first digit 5, then second digit 3, third digit 1, fourth digit 4 and fifth digit 0. The contestants reveal their numbers. The Kurkendalls came up with 40,513 whereas the San Simeons came up with 5,341. So the Kurkendalls win the first round. They play a second round and this time the numbers come up 3, then 2, then 8, the number 6 and finally a 9. The reveal shows that the Kurkendalls got 89,623, while the San Simeons could only muster 86,932. The Kurkendalls win first prize - all they can eat at their favorite restaurant, while the San Simeons get half of all they can eat. Had either team scored the best possible answer, they would have won the bonus prize - two tickets to next week's game. (Note: This skit appeared previously in Episode 106.) "Your Head" Repeat of a skit that appeared previously in Episode 105. "The Phoneymooners" Alfie is building a doghouse, which included odd pieces and even pieces. He gets annoyed when he runs out of odd pieces, but Throckmorton proves that even pieces can be made by putting two odd pieces together. "Mathnet: Problem of the Missing Monkey Part 3" Repeat of a Mathnet segment that first appeared in Episode 103.moreless
