Running Gag[edit | edit source]
Kimmy (Barber) was the victim of a hypnotist who planted a suggestion in her subconscious mind, and for some reason never released her from it. The result is that whenever she hears the trigger word "Houseboat," she unknowingly begins strutting around and clucking like a chicken. Upon hearing the second trigger word, "Boxcar," she snaps out of this trance with no knowledge of the experience.
Mad Max (Season 1, Episode 5)[edit | edit source]
Kimmy's daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas) tries to use hypnosis to put baby Tommy Junior to sleep, without success. Kimmy tells Ramona that hypnosis doesn't work and reminds her of the time a magician tried unsuccessfully to hypnotize her. Of course Ramona knows that the hypnosis did work, and briefly amuses herself by saying "Houseboat" to turn Kimmy into a chicken Then Tyler Said I'd Like To Keep Her as My Pet Chicken.
