Title: Inequality: Kids vs. Adults

Summary

The show opens with Christine complaining that she isn't focused but Ross is, and claims it's discrimation against her age. This introduces us to the "Inequalities" theme where the gang looks at how they're treated by adults because of their age. The adult dressing room is caught on fire, and the women and children get the privilege to go first ... to put the fire out.

Because the adult show next door is more important than any ol' kids show, they moved their wardrobe to the kids' dressing room and commandeered the kids' clothes (as their own clothes were burnt too). The kids had to wear barrels until they get their clothes back ... for $10 each person. Finally, in the end, the kids have the opportunity to take over the technicians' jobs behind the scenes ... for a fee of $10 each for Ross.

Trivia

  • There is no pre-empted show. However, there is a disclaimer that reads: "The following program contains certain scenes which may not be suitable for mature audiences; Juvenile discretion is advised."
  • Some of the staff on the show were confused when the script contained a sketch with absolutely no dialogue and Christine is drenched with water for "no reason." It wasn't until later when everyone finally understood that it's the previous sketch with a family on the hot-air balloon that caused the water to fall on Christine as she sits on the link set. Valerie dumps out the liquid in the can that Lance was drinking to get rid of the weight, and Christine gets hit.
  • In the dungeon, Nasti states that nobody can accuse him of discrimination because he has captured a white (Hodgkins), a black (Brodie), a hispanic (Eugene) and a girl (Liz). He has four prisoners, yet, if one looks closely, there are still only two sets of chains (for the main prisoner and Hodgkins). Brodie and Eugene have their arms up but nothing holds them to the wall.
