Episode Summary


When George goes for his annual company physical, he gets the bad news he won't be around for much longer. This gives him the chance to stand up to Mr. Spacely, who's looking for someone to test his company's latest invention, the indestructible life jacket. He agrees on conditions that his family will be provided for once he goes through the rigorous tests. He fearlessly goes through them one by one without breaking a sweat, until of course his doctor notifies him his test results were wrong. George survives the explosive last test, which will make him a top man at Spacely Sprockets. But the only thing that prevents his new fame and fortune is the fact the jacket isn't machine washable!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When George is lying down with a boulder on top of him for the pressure test, a couple of faraway shots show his sleeves the same color as the life jacket. This is also seen when the French TV reporter is holding a picture of him.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Reporter: In a moment, 200 tons of force will crash down on him, and does he care?
      George: Uh-uh! (the pile driver smashes the boulder that's placed on top of the life jack he's wearing, crumbling it to pieces, leaving him unscathed)
      Spacely: How was it, Jetson?
      George: This is the first time I've had a jacket pressed while I was wearing it.

    • Spacely: Ready for the thermoelectric resistance test?
      George: (strapped to a chair) Ready!
      Professor Lunar: Wait, wait! (hands George a long fork with a hot dog wiener attached) Hold this while I throw the switch (zaps him with electricity) Whoopee! I say, it's a success!
      George: What's this for?
      Professor Lunar: (taking back the fork with wiener) For lunch. What else?

    • George: Now hear this! Everything--Everything you all bought goes back to the store.
      Jane: But George, you said our ship had come in.
      George: It sunk!

    • Spacely: Jetson, where are you going?
      George: To Cogswell Cogs to see about a job.
      Spacely: You mean you'd work for Cogswell after all this? You'd forget your pride and go crawling to him for a job? You'd do that for a few measly dollars a week?
      George: Uh-huh! (runs out)
      Spacely: Wait for me, Jetson! I'll go with you! (also runs off)
