Episode Quotes
Hipsters Buz and Kitty dig the groovy jazz scene as Tod looks on, befuddled.

Buz: With a chick like this you got to play it glissando.
Tod: Glissando?
Buz: Cool. Like I say to her – Baby, I don’t dig the fuzzy stuff, but the hard bop really knocks me out. How are you going to gas her if you don’t know the difference between a flatted fifth and a raised seventh?
Kitty: You pass – I thought maybe you were just a tin ear. But you dig Gabe Johnson. Incandescence!
Tod: Who’s Gabe Johnson?
Kitty: A kite with no string – a hornful of helium.
Buz: Hey square, did you ever hear of Maynard Ferguson, Miles Davis, Chet Baker?
Tod: Trumpet!
Buz: Well, you put Gabe at the top of that list.
