Barth goes on vacation, leaving Ma Barth (his mother) and Jean-Paul (his French half-brother) alternately in charge of the burgery, each proving that taste runs in the family.

Alasdair Gillis left many if not most in the YCDTOTV production group impressed with his development and professionalism as an actor. Writer Robert A. Black christened him actor Les Lye's "best student," while writer Bill Buchanan referred to him "(a real) professional (who) rose to the occasion lots of times."

Not a moment before, nor a moment during, does Alasdair react in the slightest to when Lisa says "I don't know," reacting only immediately afterward in yanking his shirt over his head to prevent splattered slime getting in his hair and on his head. Subtle, but quite impressive for a 14-year-old. See more »

Ma Barth: Dah, this is my, dah, specialty. It's southern fried armadillo belly supreme smothered in red ridge catfish liver sauce, and then... THEY are collards and they're cooked in dandelion milk.
Adam Kalbfleisch: It all sounds like stuff you ran over in the parking lot this morning.
Ma Barth: Ohhhh, you guessed. D'oh, squash my skunks.
