DVD Commentary by Steve Smith[]

{from Stuffed and Mounted}

STEVE SMITH: You know, I'm really lucky, because I work with a lot of guys that I really like and they're very talented actors, but, uh, somebody like Graham Greene, it's just amazing. He came to us and just... volunteered, really, to be on the show playing this Edgar Montrose character. {holds up one hand} I mean, here's a guy, an Oscar-nominated actor who's known for his dramatic roles, wanting to just come and play on our show. And in this episode, when I did an Up Close and Personal interview with Edgar K.B. Montrose... um... I was trying so hard to keep a straight face. I don't know if you'll see it on-camera or not, but, uh, I think you might catch a glimpse of that where... this guy just cracks me up. A dramatic actor making me laugh! That says something about both of us, probably.

Segment Summary[]

Plot: Red learns that if Possum Lodge can associate itself with a charity, they will receive grants from the government. At first, their search for a charity is in vain, but then Dalton and Winston arrive to announce that they have found a charity willing to associate itself with the lodge. This charity is called the Dandruff Foundation. However, to qualify as an affiliated partner, the lodge has to provide the charity with a check for $500. To raise the money, they decide to sell candies door to door like other charities. Coincidentally, Dalton knows someone who can provide the lodge with these treats, which are imported from China. The candies in question look like some kind of a licorice. Red, Dalton and Winston start to have doubts about this, however, so they each reluctantly sample a piece of the candy themselves before they sell it. Red decides they should sell the candies for five dollars each, because they won't have too many customers and no repeat customers. Door-to-door sales of the licorice turn out poorly, of course. As Winston tries to sell the licorice, he learns why sales have been poor: he comes across a Chinese exchange student at Buster's house, who tells him that the boxes containing the treats does not read "licorice", but "earrings". They decide right then and there to stop selling and that the Dandruff Foundation will just have to do without a donation.
