Tempted to watch "V". Was fanatical about that show as a kid.

Pinky and the Brain's best episode is not on the list
"You Said a Mouseful". Jewish show, yeah. Aren't they all? Anyway it was memorable. Again it helps if you're young and foolish. The mice infiltrate the Hackensack Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kicker Factory.

Kurt Sackett: First, sheets of sheer synthetic sheepskin are slit into several Kicky-Sack shoe shapes in shapely shoe sizes by six sitting sheet slitters.

Brain: I only see five sitting sheet slitters.

KS: The sixth sitting sheet slitter's sick. His son Sammy's subbing 'til the sick sixth sitting sheet slitter's back, sitting pretty.

Pinky: You're not the sheet slitter?

S: No, I'm the sheet slitter's son.

P: Well.... You keep on slitting sheets until the sheet slitter comes! Haheheheh! Whooohaaah.

[View of a machine labelled "Sheet Slitter Shoe Shaper".]

KS: The Shoe Shaper then shapes the slit synthetic sheepskin sheets, and shoots out shoes through the chute.

KS: Now, this is Mr. Plunkett, the new khaki sock plucker. I had to fire our previous sock plucker. He had a bit of an attitude.

B: So, you sacked the cocky khaki Kicky-Sack sock plucker?

KS: The second cocky khaki Kicky-Sack sock plucker I sacked since the sixth sitting sheet slitter got sick.

[Lights dim. Machine whirs and slows down.]

KS: Whoops! Don't worry; just an electrical problem. One of the Kicky-Sack sack pickers will have to flick the plug.

P: Not the khaki sock plucker?

KS: Oh my, no! The Kicky-Sack sack pickers flick the plug. The khaki sock plucker can't reach the socket over the latex child perambulator fenders we use to line the treadmill.

B: It might make more sense to have the sixth sitting sheet slitter's son flick the plug, if the sack pickers and the sock pluckers are behind the rubber baby buggy bumpers.

[Sammy flicks the plug. Everything whirs back up.]

KS: I never thought of that!

B: Of course you didn't.

[Dissolve to Acme Labs, night.]

B: This is it, Pinky.

P: Our supper, Brain?

B: No, Pinky. This pea contains a single helium element. Once this pea is added to the Hackensack Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kicker Factory assembly line, every Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kicker will fill with helium the first time it is inflated. Now, Pinky, here is the plan. Remember, every step must be performed with precision!

You must slit the sixth sick sheet slitter's son's sheet, secure it next to the toy boat from the Hackensack Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kickers' picnic in Secaucus, stretch it past the sack pickers' station and the sock plucker's chute, and pick a sack, pluck a sock, and flick the plug, so I can put the pea in the plucked sock with the picked sack for ballast and bounce it off the rubber baby buggy bumper, into the Parker Packard purple pewter pressure pump. Is that understood?
Sock pluckers.
