Meet Jerry Simon
25 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a change-of-pace episode, and it takes the Simon boys into a world they've never really explored before. With Cecilia's help, they land a case that involves Egyptology, a shifty curator described as a penny ante social climber, and a mummy said to be connected to Queen Nefertiti. Of course, there's a pretty girl on the right side of the law (guest actress Michelle Greene) to keep us focused in case everything else gets too convoluted.

We know we're in for a series of comical scenes when A.J. and Rick help smuggle the mummy out of a building where a costume party is occurring. A.J. is dressed as Dracula, Rick is in a toga, Cecilia is dressed as a queen, and then there's Jerry. That's right-- Jerry. They drape Rick's sheet over the mummy and pass him off as a very drunken guy named Jerry Simon. After they sneak Jerry out, they haul him to A.J.'s place. But because the girl anthropologist needs proof that Jerry was once married to Nefertiti, the Simons take him to see their friend Captain Midnight down at County General. Captain Midnight is an Indian doctor named Raj who was seen briefly a few episodes prior, and he has a habit of calling A.J. by the name J.A.

Captain Midnight examines Jerry and because of some recent dental work, it is learned the Egyptian corpse is no real Egyptian at all. As they leave the examining room, another anthropologist turns up and clobbers Captain Midnight. The second anthropologist is part of a black market operation involving the mummies, which are actually corpses of more recently deceased bodies. It's kind of a strange development; and when the pretty girl gets too close to finding everything out, she is chloroformed and tied up. We know the brothers will rescue her and bust the ring wide open.

While this may not be one of the show's greatest episodes, it earns points for trying something a bit different. And the Weekend at Bernie's routine with Jerry is certainly entertaining.
