Storyline

Napoleon LeNez is a smell expert who's about to publish a self-help book on how smells can stir up beloved memories. A few days before the release of the book, one of his students, Anita Grey, tragically dies in a mysterious explosion. Her mother calls Emerson and Emerson, Ned and Chuck talk to Anita who tells them she died while scratching a scratch-and-sniff patch of the self-help book. Emerson concludes someone was trying to kill Napoleon LeNez instead of Anita. Meanwhile, Ned and Olive still don't fully know how to react to each other because of their kiss and, to Ned's dislike, Chuck wants The Pie Hole to start serving cup-pies.

Trivia

Emerson gives his phone number as "Klondike 5-0-1-5-5," listing the phone exchange by name as was common in the 1950s, before they began listing the numbers which represented the exchange. In this case, Klondike would be represented by the telephone button which had K and L on it - 5 - making the number 555-0155 - thus keeping the traditional phony '555' numerical prefix for fictional numbers in television and movies.

Smell of Success is another hilarious episode of "Pushing Daises"
30 November 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest episode of "Pushing Daises" yet! I'll just mention what this show has: murder by scratch-n-sniff, rival authors, rival colleagues, Paul Reubens, "Follow the yellow hose", Olive in a mermaid outfit, Olive's cleavage, and Chuck's aunt Vivian singing, "Morning Has Broken". There's plenty more I haven't mentioned but one more thing I have to say is: Thanks, ABC, for giving this whimsically funny series a full-season pickup! Also glad to know the ratings have gone up. Every week this show just keeps getting better. Now if only the writers' strike ends soon (with the writers getting what they want) so we can get that full season in bloom ASAP!
