Original Air Date: 09.10.2005

   Best Moment

In this week’s show, Tom and Ray float a rather novel solution for all of America’s health-care problems. Ron's got mysterious chirping under the hood of his truck - should he get a cat? Are you a cheapskate looking for air conditioning? This is your show! Erin gets crackerjack relationship advice from Click and Clack, with a unique trick to find out what kind of guy your boyfriend really is. Plus, hear a few of the all-time worst first lines of novels. This, and more, in this week’s show.
