Blizzard Conditions is the fourteenth episode of the first season which was broadcast on February 25, 2001.


A snow storm hits Sheltered Shrubs as Ginger, Dodie, and Macie work on their survival story projects. They finally get their topic when they have to save Courtney, Blake, and Winston from their limo which is buried in snow. Meanwhile, Carl and Hoodsey watch a dentist's dog in exchange for a cuspidor.


A severe snowstorm causes Courtney, Blake, and Winston to get trapped in their limousine, to be rescued by Ginger, Dodie, and Macie and brought to Ginger's house to get warm - only for the unfrozen food and the firewood to run out and the power be off so they can't cook anything. Carl and Hoodsey take care of their dentist's dog in exchange for a cuspidor (a fancy word for "something you spit into").

(reacting to Muffin kissing Dr. Randall on the lips) Hoodsey: Ew, gross. Carl: Yeah. Grown men should not talk like that.

Lois: Florida's looking pretty good right about now. Macie: I'd take it you've never seen a palmetto bug. (shudders) 

Carl: Whoa, 1953? I bet a million people have expectorated into this.

Courtney: It's one thing to close the schools, but to close the malls all over a little blizzard? I wasted a perfectly cute shopping outfit.

Courtney: You'll never guess. We've skid into a snow bank and are trapped in our limousine without food or magazines. 

Macie: (talking about Courtney) I bet all she can hear is a distant, tiny voice telling her she must save France. 

Courtney: Back off. This nut is mine.
