Recap / The Odd Couple S 2 E 8 Fat Farm

Go To

When Felix and Nancy both start pushing him about the state of his body, Oscar reluctantly agrees to accompany Felix to a two-week health camp. However, the restrictions quickly drive him to the breaking point.

This episode includes examples of the following tropes:

  • Eek, a Mouse!!: Implied. When Felix jumps up on Oscar's desk to prove how fit he is, Oscar scoffs that it doesn't count; he only learned how to do that because he fears mice.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Nose Knows: When Oscar smuggles deli food into a fat farm, Felix can smell and identify every item.... as well as a can opener. Oscar asks incredulously how he smelled the last.
  • One-Sided Arm-Wrestling: In the final scene, Felix gets Oscar into an arm-wrestling match, something he claims he's great at, attempting to prove the food he's eating doesn't give him power. Felix easily pins him.
  • Resign in Protest: A variation; when Dr. Burger evicts Oscar from the camp after his second offense, Felix tells him that if they force Oscar to leave, he's leaving as well. Dr. Burger doesn't care.
  • Sneaking Snacks: Felix talks Oscar into joining him at a weight-loss retreat he attends every year. Outside food is not allowed, but Oscar manages to sneak in a number of items from a deli nearby. Unfortunately for him, Felix can identify every one by well as the can opener Oscar brought.

How well does it match the trope?
