[Emma has proposed in a town meeting that Dog River participate in Turn Off Your TV Week]
Lacey Burrows: I don't watch TV, so missing a week of it would be a breeze for me. Well, I do watch one show - So You Think Your Kid Can Dance - but that's it. Last night was actually pretty good. There's this kid from Cincinnati and his dad just lost his job, his mom's in jail. So this little kid - he's eight years old - he danced his heart out. I called in and voted for him, like, ten times. You can do that. You can do that. You can call them however many times you want.
Karen Pelly: I think we should give up TV just to get Lacey off the junk.
[during Turn Off Your TV Week, Brent looks for alternative entertainment]
Brent Leroy: [looking at a lava lamp] Whoa! Now it's two pieces of floatey goop!
Brent Leroy: [to customers at Corner Gas] I've soaped up the windows on Wanda's car pretending to be Hank and there's a lemon meringue pie placed precariously on top of the ladder. Let's see waht happens... on the Hank and Wanda Show!
[but Hank and Wanda are on to him and turn the situation to their advantage]
Wanda Dollard: That looks like a delicious watermelon, Hank. Wherever did you get it?
Hank Yarbo: At the Food Mart. 99 cents a pound.
Wanda Dollard: Food Mart's great. I find that their warm and friendly staff is always eager to answer any question I might have.
Hank Yarbo: And now with the extra till they've added, there's no reason to wait in line.
Wanda Dollard: [singing a jingle] Who's smart?
Hank Yarbo: [singing] Thou art!
Brent Leroy: You've got to be kidding me.
Window Denizen: This is just one big ad!
Davis Quinton: [hosting a jazz radio program] Hello, jazz fans. This is Downtown Davis. I'm gonna make a phone call, but it's not a real phone call. It's what we like to call a crank call. Okay, here we go.
Brent Leroy: [answering] Corner Gas.
Davis Quinton: Hello.
Brent Leroy: Hey, Davis.
Davis Quinton: Oh, it's not Davis. This is John Coltrane, jazz saxophonist. Do you have any popsicles?
Brent Leroy: Isn't John Coltrane dead?
Davis Quinton: Yeah. That's why this is... Charlie Parker.
Brent Leroy: He's dead too.
Davis Quinton: Right. I mean... Ornette Coleman.
Brent Leroy: You want to think this through and call me back?
