Woody has a starring role in a television commercial for a new health drink called Veggie-Boy. Woody is excited before the commercial shoot, during the commercial shoot and after the commercial shoot. It isn't until the commercial starts to air that Woody's excitement turns to horror. In the commercial, Woody explicitly states that he likes it, referring to Veggie-Boy, but he finally tastes it afterward and hates it. This endorsement is a lie from a man who doesn't lie. Woody has no idea how to resolve this dilemma. Despite the fact that Lilith doesn't agree, Frasier suggests to Woody that he try hypnosis. Woody does try hypnosis, and it works - Woody ends up liking Veggie-Boy because of it. He's now ecstatic, but his euphoria is short-lived as his new found love of Veggie-Boy creates its own problem for Woody. Meanwhile, Cliff has a new enemy in the bar: Sam's new trivia bar napkins.

Woody, Freud, and Kale
3 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Woody does a commercial where he extolls the virtues of a healthy vegetable drink. But later he tries the stuff and hates it and this leads to his chastising himself for lying to the public. Dr. Crane hypnotizes him which leads to some interesting results. There's also kind of a funny bit with Cliff and some trivia napkins.
