Description

The Boondocks The Block is Hot Season 1, Episode 14 The Block Is Hot" is the fourteenth episode of the Cartoon Network channel's Adult Swim animated television series, The Boondocks. It originally aired on March 12, 2006. This was the last episode to feature Ed Wuncler, Sr. until the third episode of season 3, The Red Ball. Huey, wearing a heavy coat and scarf on a painfully hot day, is handing out fliers to passers-by. He sits on the sidewalk next to a lemonade stand that Jazmine has set up. Huey is unable to get anyone to listen to him, but Jazmine is doing excellent business. Huey: Prozac can lead to suicide. Jazmine: But lemonade can lead to smiles, which can cause dimples. Man: Dimples? I'll take two! After pulling alongside in his limo and sampling the goods, Ed Wuncler offers to buy the stand for the price of one pony. Jazmine agrees, signing the contract without reading it. Wuncler soon makes unreasonable demands of Jazmine and institutes sweat-shop labor conditions. As the days heat up, the line of customers stretches around the block and Jazmine is kept busy. Wuncler says that money from the stand will pay for the pony's food and upkeep, so that if Jazmine leaves, the pony will "starve to death in a puddle of its own feces". Jazmine stays at the stand. As her father tries to convince her to call it a day and get inside the house, Wuncler takes him aside saying: "There you have it. You know the name of the game; your daughter chose me. Now we can handle this like some gentlemen, or we can get into some old gangster shit." (almost identically quoting lyrics from U Betta Recognize, an interlude from rapper Snoop Dogg's debut album Doggystyle)
