It's cool to see the writers issue an inside joke by giving Warren's Dad -- Curtis "Booger" Armstrong from Revenge of the Nerds -- a shout-out by referring to him as a nerd. It made me feel all superior that I thought of that myself rather than having to rely on the message boards for this show for my witty insights for a change.
During the closing statements, the mean lady lawyer points out that Wally's clearly unhappy and has been a miserable child since DuckTales got cancelled. He ran away because of this unhappiness. And his parents are having trouble blaming themselves. Had they been better parents, the kid would never have run away. Ed gets up and asks what makes kids the way they are? Genetics? Environment? Easy access to the crack rock? Ed thinks it's a combination of all of those things. It was either a wise man or a fortune cookie that once said, "Two wrongs don't make a right." Dr. Crazy knows that thousands of kids hang on his every word. And he should have known that if he told a kid to run away, the kid would run away. The Judge decides to mull over the case during the weekend and deliver the verdict on Monday. I check my calendar and realize that I can't sit here watching TV until Monday and secretly hope that the case is taken care of outside of court.
Walking out of the courtroom, Mama Loser says she wishes this were all over, because her son has been dragged through the mud, then some gravel, then some sand, then back to the mud, and finally some feathers, and now he's just a strange-looking bird-like creature. Dr. Crazy walks up to them and asks the family to watch his show tonight. Please watch. Maybe that's the approach NBC needs to take with television viewers in order to entice them to watch Ed -- have the stars walk up to them in public and tell them to watch the show. I've gotta say, if Nancy walked up to me on the street begging me to watch her show...I'd want to see what was in it for me and see if we could discuss it further in the nearest Holiday Inn Express.
