Best Intentions
{{#vardefine:characters|04}}“Best Intentions” is episode #213 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Paul McCusker, and originally aired {{#var:airdatelink}}.


Connie and Eugene try to make Whit recuperate from his recent experience in the Imagination Station as Harlow Doyle and Sam Johnson try to find out what's wrong.



Whit is home from the hospital, recuperating from his ordeal with the death program in the Imagination Station. Everyone in Odyssey has Whit’s best interests at heart, and they keep coming over to his house to make sure he is resting.

First, Connie and Eugene try to help, and they pamper him, too much.

Then, Eugene refuses to let anyone, even Tom, visit Whit. This forces Tom to climb a tree and go in through Whit’s bedroom window. Whit is happy to see Tom, until Tom insists on reading to Whit.

Meanwhile, Sam Johnson discovers that Whit's End is closed. Dissatisfied with the explanation, he wants to find out why the emporium is really shut down. So Sam allows Harlow Doyle to impose his aid and help find the answer.

Eventually, everyone but Sam ends up in Whit’s room, causing all sorts of commotion. Doc Morton enters and tries to get everyone to leave, causing even more uproar. But, in the ruckus, Whit slips out unnoticed. He finds Sam (who is sitting out in front of the house), and the two of them go where Whit can get some rest, to Whit’s End.

This plot section is too short. You can help by expanding it.

Harlow Doyle: Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?

Tom Riley: "The Pilgrim's Progress in the Similitude of a Dream". "As I walked through the wilderness, uh, of this world, I litted...lighted...on a certain place, wh-where was a den." "Where was a den"? No offense, Whit, but this writer needs to learn something about English.
John Whittaker: Well, I'll be sure to tell him.
Tom Riley: "As I laid me down in that place to sleep, and as I slept I dreamed a dream." What else would you dream? "I dreamed, and behold, I saw a man clothed with rags standing in a certain place, with his face from his house...with his face from his own house.

Tom Riley: No offense, Whit, but was this thing a big seller?
John Whittaker: I think so.
Tom Riley: Well, I can't make heads or tails outta this, but I mean, who's going to believe a character by the name of "Obstinate"?
John Whittaker: It's an allegory, Tom.
Tom Riley: Huh, doesn't surprise me. It's not much of a story!

Harlow Doyle: Miss Turner, please dictate a memo to myself: Remind me to get my jogging shoes out of the closet. Sign it "Harlow Doyle, Private eye." Thank you in advance, Miss Turner. This is Harlow Doyle; over and out!

Eugene Meltsner: Mr. Riley?! I thought I asked you to leave!
Tom Riley: You did, and I didn't. So nah-nana-nah-nah!

Harlow Doyle: What?! That’s preposterous, how can you expect us to do the intelligent thing at a time like this?!

Harlow Doyle: Excuse me but would everybody line up against the wall and identify them self's. I'd like Whit to show us who the kidnapper was.
Doc Morton: What! Who are you?
Harlow Doyle: Me? Harlow Doyle, Private Eye.
