1.17 Wyatt Erectus
Wyatt wants to be more aggressive about asking girls on dates, so Lisa gives him a cologne spritzer that helps him out. Unfortunately, he spritzes too much and regresses biologically, becoming a hairy Neanderthal. He eats like a
pig and gets really aggressive with women. He won’t stop using it though. When he and Gary have a fight about it, it gets spilled on him and he regresses further.
Meanwhile, Chett comes home to find an audio tape from his Mom giving him a choice of chores around the
"Clean out the garage."
Chett: "In your dreams."
"Paint the lanai"
"Kiss my butt"
"Or keep the raccoons from digging up my rose bushes."
"Huh. Masked invaders..." Chett likes this one.
"Should you choose to get rid of the raccoons, please be
Chett laughs. “Good one.”
He sets up traps in the garden and tests
them by sending a remote-controlled toy car (with a raccoon cap, of
course) down the garden path. The "raccoon" follows a
trail Chett has made using Cheezos until it encounters the trap.
Whomp! The trap clobbers the test raccoon “Another snack-related
fatality,” Chett declares.
Gary and Wyatt bring their dates back to the house and Wyatt jumps all over his. His cologne rubs off on her and she regresses
to a Neanderthal too. The two of them go out to the backyard, where Chett is hunting for raccoons. He hears them giggling and mistakes them for raccoons and looks for them with his night-vision goggles.
From up in the tree, the two of them grab Chett, lift and drop him. He curses them and crawls away,
and winds up getting whacked by his own trap. All very funny , with
shades of Bill Murray vs. the gophers in "Caddy Shack."
