Quotes

Artemus Gordon: You know, you gentlemen are all like the young lady from Niger who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
Asa Dempster: What kind of nonsense is that?
Artemus Gordon: They returned from the ride with the lady inside, and a smile on the face of the tiger. Have a pleasant ride, gentleman.

West's Big Fork
2 May 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A giant fork is destroying mansions and the boys become involved trying to figure out who's behind it. A great episode with Ross Martin shining as an uppity waiter carving tooth picks for an unsavory guest.

Harold Gould who would later go on to be the bad guy in Mel Brook's 'Silent Movie', is the guest villain and we also get a terrific appearance from Fritz Feld who gets to pop his mouth like in every other TV show he appeared in such as Lost in Space.

The action skips around and West and Arte get to go on a date at the end. Watch for the henchman rip his pants right up the backside as West punches him.

You can't miss it.

Unfortunately Gordon would injure himself in this episode and miss a few episodes
