Woody has a starring role in a television commercial for a new health drink called Veggie-Boy. Woody is excited before the commercial shoot, during the commercial shoot and after the commercial shoot. It isn't until the commercial starts to air that Woody's excitement turns to horror. In the commercial, Woody explicitly states that he likes it, referring to Veggie-Boy, but he finally tastes it afterward and hates it. This endorsement is a lie from a man who doesn't lie. Woody has no idea how to resolve this dilemma. Despite the fact that Lilith doesn't agree, Frasier suggests to Woody that he try hypnosis. Woody does try hypnosis, and it works - Woody ends up liking Veggie-Boy because of it. He's now ecstatic, but his euphoria is short-lived as his new found love of Veggie-Boy creates its own problem for Woody. Meanwhile, Cliff has a new enemy in the bar: Sam's new trivia bar napkins.

Cliff Clavin: You know Woody, the way that Ma got me used to a new vegetable like, say Brussels sprouts, she used to put a few in each of my pockets and have me walk around with them all day.
Woody Boyd: Well, thanks Mr. Clavin, but Brussel sprouts aren't the problem.
Cliff Clavin: Oh, you should try it anyway. It's a nice feeling.

Veggie-Boyd (#9.10)
20 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Woody gets a part in a commercial for a drink called veggie boy. But it isn't as good, and Woody is devastated that he has lied to America. To help him Frasier suggests using some hypnosis on him to make him actually like Veggie Boy so that his suggestion isn't a lie. But then the product goes out of business as nobody liked it.

I think I actually would have liked Veggie Boy! Broccoli, Cauliflower and Kale sounds like its great, only tomatoes are missing. Still it was a very fun story and I loved Frasier and Lilith's psychology discussions.

Cliff and the napkins was also a funny storyline. Although I feel bad for cliff, everyone acting like they dislike him isn't that amusing for me.
