While playing with Jamie's chemistry set, Vicki creates a potent laundry detergent that Ted — and Brandon — leap to market themselves.
Basically a soapy retread of “Vicki Goodwrench”, but with the alert that there'd be no fifth season, few cared — except a few intrepid and long frustrated freelancers who felt, Why not a few new (i.e., maturer SF) storylines while we're sinking?
Notable: Brissette badly wanted to tear her costume apart (after it was corroded by soap's side effects) as badly as Supiran, Pennington and the others shred theirs, but the producers said any hint of striptease is a no-no for girls...at least little ones. As is traditional in the series, soap company rep Bertrand was also named after a staff member of the production.
