Corner Gas, Episode 20: Hero Sandwich

  • The Writers – Brent Butt and Andrew Carr
  • Director – David Storey
  • A brief synopsis – Wanda contemplates getting a tattoo, until he gets an offer from Emma to design the image.  Lacey’s new Ruby Club sandwich is too big of a hit.  Everyone is up in arms over the proposal to put in a stop light in town.  Karen and Davis start doing their job by ticketing every one who jaywalks in town, leaving Oscar towards open rebellion.
  • The best line – Wanda: I just can’t think of what (tattoo) to get.  Brent: Well there’s the Chinese symbol for “Disappointing your parents.”
  • 2nd best line – Brent (trying Lacey’s new sandwich): Hmm.  That’s tasty.  What is it?  Lacey: I invented them.  I call it, The Ruby Club.   Brent: That’s fantastic!  I’ll have a chili cheese dog.
  • The best moment – Oscar likes the railroad crossing signal over the traffic light, because it “put’s on a good show.”
  • The best storyline – All good ones, topped by Oscar going “on the lamb” to avoid jaywalking tickets.
  • Notable guest appearance – N/A
  • Em’s Favorite Character – Oscar, because he tried to hide from the cops behind the toaster.
  • Grade – A-

Solid and hilarious.  We see more of Karen and Davis, which helps to make it a more fully integrated show.  Brent is in rare form with several good lines.  The fact that Wanda gets a fleshed out story is great, and her delicate handling of Emma’s feelings is a rare feat.  Lacey’s successful sandwich is irony squared.  Oscar and Hank take the day, though, as usual.
