Monkees A La Carte
Back Home Up Next


The Monkees learn that a mobster is trying to take over a Mom-and-Pop restaurant they frequent both as customers and as performers. As usual, they rush to help both the restaurant owner and the police, who are trying to apprehend the crooks. A little Monkee madness, a lot of quick costume changes, and some very fast thinking save the day. Not only did the owner appreciate their help, but the Monkees also pleased God by doing the right thing. God commands us to "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy" (Proverbs 31:8-9; see also Psalm 82:3-4, Isaiah 1:17). Rather than following Dr. Turner’s example at the beginning of the previous episode (saying he’ll help if a problem arises and then running when faced with the very situation he’d just described), we need to emulate the Monkees and jump at a chance to help anyone in need.
