Storyline

Tony DiNapoli is murdered and his girlfriend Tina Arongino is the suspect. She hires Emerson to prove her innocence. Emerson, Ned and Chuck - looking just like Janis Joplin in this scene - talk to Tony and he tells them he was murdered by Burly Bruce Carter, who killed him with the hands of his girlfriend, a real doll! Meanwhile, The Pie Hole gets competition from Bittersweets, a candy store that has opened across the street and whose owners make it very clear they'll do anything to put The Pie Hole out of business. To make matters even worse, Ned finds the dead body of one of the owners in the candy store at the exact moment the police enters the building... Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Dilly's background story references Alfred Hitchcock's movie "The Birds". She is dressed in the same outfit and has the same hairstyle as movie's heroine, played by Tippi Hedron. The movie takes place in Bodega Bay, and at the beginning, the heroine is attacked by seagulls on her way to the town via a speedboat. See more »

Goofs

When young Ned jumps in the pile of dead leaves, the ones he touches become "alive" and green again. A leaf is dead the instant it detaches from the living tree it was once a part of, even if it is still green for a time, so touching a dead leaf would not bring it back to "life". Further, if this were cannon for Ned, everything that was ever part of a larger living organism that Ned touched would spring back to it's texture and state it bore when previously part of the whole: leather, meat in food items, literally anything that was once part of a living thing.
