When he can't get Buddy to take his bath, a frustrated Jon gives up, but promises him "you'll be sorry". Buddy naturally scoffs at this.

Title: "Single Right Female"

Story (out of 24 pages): 5 p.

Writer: Matthew A. Jencks

Penciller: Jan W. Osteen

Letterer: Jose A. Wheat

Colorist: Newton E. Haas

Summary:

The story opens as Will B. Caustic and Prof. Bobcat announce the winner of KSSA's first-ever "Day With The Deejays" competition. The lucky contest winner is "Alyson Alack", who will get to spend a whole workaday eight hours with her two favorite morning zoo hosts. The pair promise to visit her house the next day and record a segment of their show live from Alyson's living room.

Unfortunately "Alyson Alack of East Jiggton" is a complete sham. In actuality the recipient of the prize is Dr. Nora Messinger, a deranged radio shrink who blames Caustic and Bobcat for costing her her job. She seeks to lure them into a trap to exact a gruesome revenge.

Notes
The title refers to Single White Female, a 1992 film about a disturbed woman who, after answering her ad for a roommate, soon becomes manipulative, clingy, and murderous, and makes her new friend's life hell.

"Nora Messinger" is a parody of Dr. Laura Schlessinger, a controversial conservative radio therapist whose now-cancelled radio program espoused a message of Judeo-Christian faith and family values.

Messinger's scheme is loosely based on Alexander Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo; it also involves turning a victim into an oversized foodstuff, similar to a Dumas-inspired Simpsons episode, "Revenge is A Dish Best Served Three Times".

Billy becomes intrigued by the book Don Quixote and its vivid descriptions exciting feats of gallantry, heroism, and daring-do. After an accident causes him to take a blow to the head, he actually begins to fancy that he is the famous Man of La Mancha, and that Benjamin is his faithful old horse Rocinante.
