Episode No: 003

Title: Fan Letters


Kevin Somers goes on the Make A Million game show ("The show that gives away a million dollars every week!"), and almost wins the money, but in a desperate act, Mr. Dime cancels the show before Kevin gets the chance to answer the question. Later, Kevin brags about being a star after recieving a single (unstamped) piece of fan mail, which Marc talks him into letting him answer. Kevin continues to brag when Ross comes on the set, and dumps a big bag of fan mail on the set ... all for Jono, who must answer all of it by that night. Kevin, embarassed, asks for just one, and he gets it. Unfortunately, it's from the phone company.


  • This is one of the last episodes that uses the now, very tiresome question "What's the largest lake in North America\Canada?" No one gets slimed by it either, losing the novelty attatched to it.
