...I'm waiting...

Ahem. I'm still getting a feel for what the original episodes were like, but I think I enjoyed this more than "Whit's Flop". It reached further in both drama and Odyssey's later-to-be-trademark humor. (Craig has nothing on Tom Riley.)

One question: There's a line I'm having trouble making out shortly after Craig has his wipeout. It sounds like, "Want to come down to the reservoir with us? We're going to play army!" Which technically adds up as a sentence, but why a reservoir...?

I think that is the line. Maybe it was just a place in the land of old-school Odyssey where kids could hang out and play outside without people yelling at them for being too loud. ;) I don't know. But I think that is what the kid says.

That's probably true, because in "The Prodigal, Jimmy", Jimmy asks Howie and Mook if they also want to go down to the resevoir and play army.
Eugene-"Well, the sequence of events occured with extreme rapidity, but I shall attempt to recall them. I was powering my two-wheeler along this concrete pathway, when your personnage suddenly appeared directly in front of me blocking my course. My reflexes immediately sprang to life in an attempt to navigate an evasive manouveur around you while still maintaining course and speed, but I evidently over-compensated, and my Schwinn careened off the hardened path, taking me with it, and up-ended us both in this shrub, a Rhododendron of the heath family I believe, deducing from the leathery evergreen leaves, as distinguished from the deciduous Azalea, which as we all know is..."
Isaac-"You mean, you crashed into this bush cause I got in your way."
Eugene-"Well, that of course is another way of expressing it." Isaac the Benevolent

I really liked the "Knock Knock Joke."
