Olive plans to deliver another pie with mood-improving drugs to the aunts of Chuck (Lily and Vivian) when a messenger pigeon hits the window of the pie shop. While Olive holds the bird, Ned accidentally touches it and she decides to take the pigeon to bird lovers Lily and Vivian. When a crop duster hits the building across the street, Ned, Emerson and Chuck check it out. Owner of the apartment is the unharmed Conrad Fitch, an attractive man who catches Chuck when she falls, which makes Ned rather uncomfortable. The widow of the pilot hires them to prove he hasn't killed himself but that he was murdered instead so she can get the life insurance money. The pilot tells Ned his crop duster was hijacked by a man in an orange prison suit. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

This Show's Got Legs! Another Fantastic Episode!
29 October 2007 | by facetoneSee all my reviews

What an amazing convergence of talent, writing and cinematography! It consistently provides a magical combination of wit, salaciousness, color and fun. I see an interesting analog between the relationship of Chuck and Ned and 21st Century social structures, based upon factors ranging from distance to sexually transmitted disease. I'll give it some thought and draw up a full proposal on it in my blog. Seeing my new buddy Dash Mihok in an episode that had an abundance of imagination, humor, romance, and allegorical virtue was just the cherry on top of the sundae. Please don't let the thick-heads who control the money take away this show...or what's so damn good about it. Shout out to Mr. McBride! Look forward to working with you again.
