Plot

Green-eyes-and-yellow-tulips.png

A crowd of anxious reporters gathers at Whit's End to find out what Whit's reaction to the latest batch of Novacom programming is. It seems the company has duplicated the Imagination Station in a show that contains a lot of violence and bad language. Whit declines comment.

Later in the day, Connie meets Robert Mitchell, a community relations worker for Novacom who wants Whit to give reviews of Novacom's programming. "Mitch" says he's a Christian and wants the town to be a better place, just like Whit. Whit agrees.

Meanwhile, Bart and Rodney start acting nice to Connie and Whit - Rodney even pretends to have a crush on Connie - to convince them to help with a protest against Novacom. Whit declines Bart's offer, wondering why Bart is suddenly so angry with the company.

Mitch meets Connie later at Whit's End and just as the two are talking, Tom bursts in with a poster that says Whit is helping with a protest against Novacom. Connie insists that Whit had nothing to do with the poster. The protest later commences at Novacom, with Whit only showing up to show his disapproval to Bart. When Arthur Dent turns up to try to persuade the protesters to move, the group gets violent, breaking windows and throwing rocks. Whit is hit with a rock and Mitch takes him to the hospital.

Joanne Allen stops in at Whit's End and finds that Connie has received some flowers from a secret admirer. Connie assumes that they are from Mitch. The two of them discuss Connie's feelings for Mitch. Connie insists that she can't date Mitch because he's a Novacom worker. Whit shows up with Mitch; Connie and Mitch have a talk. Before Mitch can ask her if she can help him, Connie tells Mitch "she can't," mistakenly thinking he's going to ask her out. Mitch says he respects her decision and leaves, just as Bart and Rodney come in. They're hiding from the police. Rodney reveals that he sent Connie the flowers and Whit finds that Bart wanted to protest Novacom because they didn't like his show idea. Connie finds that Mitch was going to ask her to be a part of a Bible study and Whit says he has no problem with Mitch. Connie calls Mitch to leave a message apologizing and saying that she'll help with the Bible study. The next day, more flowers arrive...this time, from Mitch.

Discussion Questions

  1. Why was Bart protesting Novacom?
  2. What were Whit's concerns about the company?
  3. Whose reasons were better reasons?
  4. Why didn't Connie want to be involved with Mitch?
  5. Sometimes we judge people on just what we see without knowing anything about their character. What does the Bible say about that?

Notes

  • VERSION DIFFERENCE: The album version of this episode includes a number of additions to scenes that weren't included in the broadcast. Whit asks Mitch to find out why Novacom is still cutting in the KYDS' Radio broadcasts. Mitch agrees, but teases Connie that her show is "amateur." When Bart is trying to persuade Whit to help him, he tells him about how Novacom has corrupted Rodney. Whit points out how bad Rodney was before Novacom came to town. Mitch later confesses to Connie that he heard her show and now appreciates the value of flossing his teeth. Connie tries to impress Mitch with her computer knowledge and ends up looking silly. Bart encourages Whit to say a few words at the protest. Connie elaborates further to Joanne why she can't date Mitch (and stumbles over her words and her decision). Bart explains more about what his show on Novacom would have been all about.
    • NOTE: Even though the above changes were listed over on the AIOHQ (run by Nathan Hoobler) back in 2001 when this episode aired, the extended version of this episode was NOT included on the album.
  • Rodney calls John Whittaker "Whit".
  • In the scene where Mitch is first introduced, his voice changes twice. This is because a couple of his lines were recorded with a different, younger actor.
Reviews
Goofs
  • On the cover, the protestors are throwing tomatoes at the Novacom building; however, in the actual episode, they were throwing rocks, one of which injured Whit.
