Mom Weir and Sam wander around a department store and come across a microwave oven demo. Mom mentions that Dad doesn't trust anything that cooks so quickly. The salesman ["and the actor playing him also played a character who nearly raped Donna on 90210" -- Wing Chun] points out that if Dad were doing all the cooking he might be a bit more open-minded. Ah, you don't know Dad like Mom, Sam, and we do. Anyway, the demo gets pretty old, pretty quickly for Sam, so he wanders away to check out Atari systems and happens to see Dr. Schweiber in a clinch with a young-ish, blonde woman, giving her an oral examination, so to speak. Dr. S. spots Sam looking at him and he quickly releases the woman and shouts at Sam. Sam explains that he and his mother are there looking at microwaves which prompts the doctor to do a really lame Shatner impression about barbecuing tribbles. Neal's Shatner blows his father's away. The good doctor explains that the woman, Carol, is an old high-school friend of his, and they haven't seen each other for a long time. Carol is probably thinking, 'Hey, less of the old, thanks' since she looks to be about fifteen years younger than he is. Neal's dad pulls Sam aside to ask him not to mention to anyone the he saw him with his "old friend." Sam reluctantly agrees but he knows that this situation stinks like yesterday's cat food. What a dirtbag that dentist is.
At school, Nick, Ken, and Daniel are discussing Laser Floyd at the Laser Dome but only Nick seems enthusiastic about going. Ken says that he can make his own laser show in his mind. To convince them, Nick 'sings,' "If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding" from "Another Brick in the Wall, Part II." I bet he doesn't realize "pudding" means "dessert" in England and not the stuff Bill Cosby shills for in the U.S. Nick rests his case: "It's Floyd!" That's exactly why I never went to see Laser Floyd or Laser Zeppelin at the McLaughlin Planetarium, back in the day. Kim and Lindsay join them and Lindsay asks, "Isn't it just a bunch of squiggly lights on a ceiling?" Nick is disgusted by the suggestion and he explains that it is a "metaphysical experience." Lindsay agrees to go then tries to act tough in front of Nick by saying that she might not go. She tells Kim that she's going to get something to eat and walks away. Amy passes Ken in the hall and he stares at her and her tuba. Is anyone else glad that Amy is a tuba player and not a flute player? That would be too much.
