Commercials. Apparently the bald guy on ER is dead because NBC isn't promoting the show anymore. That show's going to sink faster than Leo DiCaprio at the end of Titanic now that Captain Baldy's gone.
In Carol's classroom, Molly's asking the "cub reporter" which story she's decided to write. Carol can't decide if she wants to report on the guy that has every single copy of Field and Stream since 1946 ("too dull"), the guy who got in a fistfight with Michael Dukakis ("too depressing"), the woman who eats nothing but hashbrowns ("too creepy"), the woman who wears only orange clothing ("also too creepy, but getting warmer"), or the man who grew a fifty-pound pumpkin in his back yard. Molly thinks the fifty-pound pumpkin story is the best, because you can never go wrong with abnormally large produce -- besides which, she can only imagine the size of pie a pumpkin like that could make, and how quickly she could scarf it all down. Molly's brought Carol a gift: a press hat. It barely covers that big head of Carol's that she received the day she became prom queen.
Ed and Mike are walking down the street as Ed tells Mike that they need to get him a new suit. Mike says he has a perfectly fine suit. Ed says Mike can't show up in court wearing a blue pinstripe suit with giant lapels because he'll look like a strip-club bouncer or a pimp. Mike says it's a business suit, and Ed says, "Whatever you say, Superfly." Mike asks if Ed's enjoying this. Ed says that if Mike's talking about the case, then, no, Ed's not enjoying that. But if Mike's talking about Ed holding Mike's fate in the palm of his hand...a-a-a-absolutely. Mike calls him a bastard, and Ed says he'll treat Mike to a pocket square.
