Episode # 190 - Sick Daze


  Episode Title Origin: Sick days. I get about five per semester, not that I use them. A daze is a dizzyness-like state.

Teaser: Our heroes are waiting for breakfast, when suddenly Brock collapses.

(Insert theme song here)

Brock is told to lie in bed (in a rather conveniently placed log cabin) until he gets better (physically, at least). Meanwhile, Ash and Misty must take on his chores. Most of the instructions are in Brock's notebook, but even that can't always help. First, Ash tries to groom Brock's Onix with Totodile (pure hilarity). Then Ash goes off to get some lunch. However, Team Rocket is picking all the apples. Of course, this plan is quickly squashed. After lunch, Ash and Misty go and make dinner. Ash chops firewood (they trusted him with a blade?!?), and Misty puts the soup together. After repeatedly putting too much salt and sugar in it, she decides that it needs a little more flavor, so she adds ketchup, and mayo, and soy sauce, until she reaches a total of "47 secret ingredients" (I would have stopped at ketchup). Ash flatly refuses to eat the resulting Purple liquid (he says he filled up on apples...right), and therefore Misty is forced to eat her own creation. She says it doesn't taste like anything she's ever had.

After our heroes go to bed, we see Team Rocket plotting to capture the Pokémon. Well, Meowth and James are plotting. Jessie is enjoying (believe it or not) Misty's cooking catastrophe. The others try it, and hate it. In any event, most of Ash's Pokémon (sans Pikachu) are captured, and Our heroes pursue, but fall into a hole. Then Pikachu gets captured. Things look pretty bleak, until Brock's Golbat punctures the balloon, and Team Rocket is sent blasting off again.

Tag: The next morning, the group finally gets a decent meal, but they decide Brock should rest up a bit more before they continue on.

Who's that Pokémon: Heracross

Moral of the Episode: You don't realize how important something is until you lose it.

Analysis: This could have been a very mediocre episode. However, the subplots about Brock's dreams and Misty's soup really helped fill things out into one of the funniest episodes of the season. I especially liked the soup story, since I've been accused of overusing condiments myself (although not 47 of them). You really have to see this episode for yourself.
