|Chris: You know what you are Earl? You're a little, tiny, busy
ant. You too, Mike. Both you guys, with your mortgages and your term life insurance
and your Weber kettles. Ant. Ant. All of you, you're all a bunch of little,
busy, blind ants. All you all. Saving up for your rainy days. Scratching up
your acorns for the winter. You look at me and you think, "What a piece of pathetic
trash out there in that leaky trailer." No spoon, no fork, no prospects. But,
you know why? Cause I'm a grasshopper. Ant. Grasshopper. Ant. Grasshopper. Ant.
Grasshopper. Ant. Grasshopper. Ant!
||Maurice is tormented by a wax replica of himself; Chris discovers that he may live long enough to see
forty; the dental mobile comes to Cicely.
Maurice is selected to be displayed in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum as part of
a new "Rugged Individualists" exhibit. Initially overjoyed by his wax replica,
Maurice becomes increasingly spooked and dismayed by it. Finally, when the museum
is scheduled to pick it up, he receives notice that he has been "un-chosen"
from the exhibit and given the statue as a gift. Unable to live with the freaky
manikin and unwilling to let someone else keep it for ridicule and party tricks,
Maurice dumps his image in the trash.
Chris is equally
traumatized by the realization that pills to control his high blood pressure
will keep him from kicking the bucket by forty, thus following in the family
tradition. Although this should be an exciting revelation, he realizes that
he has been living his life in the short-term, counting on being dead before
his deeds caught up with him.

Dr. John Summer, D.D.S. (guest star Jay
O. Sanders). With the best of intentions, Dr. John sets up his Winnebago
to treat the chops of Cicely's residents. However, the townspeople are not too
excited to go under the drill and he is dejected.
The Stevens men usually putter out around forty. Maurice had a hobo sign his
papers so he could enlist in the Korean war. In addition to long life, the Vincouer
men are graced with uncommonly strong teeth. Chris cycles with a knock-out biker
chick, Carla. Chris has lived his life without thinking about tomorrow - he's
being chased by parking tickets, unfiled taxes, and a scary TRW.
