Summary Edit

Pepper Ann stumbles across a Renaissance Fair and really likes the atmosphere there. She starts going every day as her invented character as an escape from reality. But as the character grows and she begins to make friends at the Fair, her life in the real world begins to suffer.


Giles: What is this 'algebra'? Some kind of torture?
Pepper Ann: No! Not Sir Talonsworth!
Pepper Ann: Can we have turkey legs for dinner?
Crash: Yes! My company owns the exclusive rights to yellow mustard! Now is your deli franchise ready to talk turkey?
Milo: Are you mad, boy?!
Nicky: That's preposterous! No one has ever finished a game of Anti-Trust!


  • The title of this episode is a parody of William Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor.
