Episode Summary

From Showtime: When a wayward bean fragment from a new coffee grinder scratches Yola's eye, she must wear an eye patch for a week. To her surprise, the restricted vision gives Yola a better view of her shallow behavior and she vows to become a nicer person by doing good deeds. Yola begins the transformation by selling Chris' decrepit Nova and getting him a fabulous new car. Chris is elated by the gesture, but as the novelty of the moon roof, dual climate control, and GPS wear off, Chris starts to long for the charm and practicality of his beloved Nova and conspires with Yola to get it back. Meanwhile, Anson is devastated when his buddy, Phil is crushed to death by a vending machine while trying to steal a soda. Mourning his friend's wasted potential, he searches for a way to add more meaning to his life. After much deliberation, Anson decides to set a go-cart world record for the most laps around a track in 24 hours without stopping. And with Kenney and Roly's help he may just do it, until 12-year-old Mickey Tibbals shows up to challenge him.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • 1.  Though he's
        credited, "Doc," (Ron Halder,) was not seen in this episode.  It's unsure what scene (or scenes,) he might
        have been in, but if I had to guess, I'd say he may have been on the set when
        Phil wound up underneath the soda machine.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Chris and Kenney, trying to figure out Chris' new car:

        Chris: "I pressed in the code thing, and it's just not doing what it's supposed to."

        Chris: "I don't want the manual."

        Kenney: "Oh right, you're the Unibomber. You don't do technology."
