I’d like to rename this episode Prophylactic Measures in honour of Mike. He has a certain eloquence to him, no? Scene opens in a lab, where a Christopher Walken-esque old dude is trying out an array of sauces, while a team in white lab coats anxiously await his opinion. The head scientist is going through the flavours (the entire conversation is in German):  versions of honey mustard, French dressing/Ranch fusion (Franch!) and smoky mesquite BBQ are presented. Full Story
