Everybody Hates Chris: Everybody Hates Halloween

Chris' plans to attend his neighbor Lisa's big Halloween party are threatened when his mother Rochelle makes him take his younger brother and sister trick-or-treating. Meanwhile, Chris and Greg attempt to dodge holiday pranksters armed with rotten eggs at school. Later, Rochelle objects when cost-conscious Julius wants to give trick-or-treaters the generic "M and N's, " "Nickers" and "Gravy Ways" that he bought.

Episode Quotes
Rochelle: (Looking at Candy) What's this? Butterthumbs?!

Rochelle: Don't eat any candy until you get home and show it to me! One boy ate an apple with a rasor in it and it cut his head off!

Narrator: You would think a guy that gets beat up everyday wouldn't leave the house wearing tights.
