Maximillian Coyne: [pointing at Buz] Look at him, just look at him. Why that pizzazz is just oozing from every pore.
Tod Stiles: [as Tod and Buz get in the car to leave] Excuse me.
Maximillian Coyne: Where, where are you going?
Tod Stiles: [about Buz] I got to rush him to the hospital so they can close his pores because if he loses too much pizzazz, he goes right into shock.

a Very Routine and Undistinguished Episode
26 May 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

A very average episode dealing with Tod and Buz becoming involved with a huckster (Wynn) who bursts into the small town of Carlisle, Pennsylvania and tries to get everyone involved in a phony beauty contest. The story and characters are very routine and Wynn doesn't seem completely well cast for the part. There are a few good bits including a scene involving a disgruntled mother of a former contest winner who disrupts the current pageant. Nettleton also gives a real nice, long introspective speech at the end.

The episode also features Tod and Buz getting involved in a amusing bar room brawl at the beginning, but it is also very unrealistic. They come out of the fight, that involves at least four other men, without a single scratch of bruise on them.

Grade: B-
