Hey, guys. Jim is feeling a little under the weather, so we decided to wait on recording "E.T." for now and re-air a classic episode, one of our favorites. See you next week!

ORIGINAL SHOW NOTES:

G'day, mates! The 1986 Aussie-American comedy "Crocodile Dundee" takes us deep into the Outback on a harrowin’ journey with poisonous snakes, gun-totin’ roos and giant rubber crocs. It also takes us to New York City where the hero of the story goes around Manhattan while casually assaulting newspaper editors, pimps, cross-dressers and small-knife-wielding, would-be muggers.

Paul Hogan plays Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee, a possibly magical, fun-lovin’ big-knife-wielding bloke who enjoys knocking unsuspecting people unconscious, shooting at drunken idiots and poaching protected wildlife. He's perfectly content walking about the world by himself until he meets a "sheila" with a nice arse and is quickly swept away.

Linda Kozlowski plays Sue Charlton, a plucky young reporter who enjoys cheating on her boyfriend and jet setting around the world to write trivial articles while exclusively staying in extravagant 5-star hotels because her daddy owns the newspaper she works for.

Reginald VelJohnson (Carl Winslow from "Family Matters") plays Gus, the newspaper's apparent full-time kindly limo driver who loves to drink on the job and throw makeshift boomerangs at pimps.

Join us as we recount a time we almost got charged by an angry bull, as we wonder why Americans were so obsessed with Australia in the 1980s, and as we try to come up with interesting slogans for cocaine.
