Great post. Lots of people got duped.

I understand that some people feel they are excellent judges of characters and get vibes and could see whether or not someone was honest.

I think stephen greenspan needs better vibe detectors. Do you think there is a homeopathic drug he could take to increase his vibe sensitivity?

Yes. Some episodes had that as the basis. As I recall, they leaned more toward invention and Ralph getting out of the bus driver job.
