Tough week here, kiddies.  In an effort to get through this quick, the Boys do the entire Resort/Downtown Disney Bracket in one, unfortunate go.  Kip and Dutch turn on each other when discussing Russ' phone memory.  The low point is when Kip declares this:  "The worst episode ever."  In the words of Harvey Dent, it is always darkest before dawn.  Well, it's pretty dark out.

Russ is back from The World and has a lot to report.  Kip and Dutch are back from some other not-so-interesting places.  Before we even get there we have a bursting mail sack to take care of.  Special thanks from all of the boys to Jen from Coventry, Steve-o from the Ill-adelhpia, and Reggie Cunningham from Parts Unknown.  Russ covers the hurricane, his love of the Ford Taurus, and new traffic patterns in the Studios.  We also learn that the Wilderness Lodge is bear friendly and Russ' favorite meat.

Mr. and Dr. Springfield are going to Disneyland.  Unfortunately, Dr. Springfield did most of the planning, so Kip doesn't really know too much of what they've got planned.  Matching Kip with zero show prep, Russ and Dutch prepare Kip for what to expect.  There's a fun little diversion where Russ discusses his unique observation of Ariel at the Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
