    Lightbulb Lucky Aide

    How did the name "Lucky Aide" come to be? I mean, it just doesn't seem like a departmental store. Where I live, stores like that are referred to Osco Drug, Walgreens, ShopKo, etc., but Lucky Aide just seems like such a weird name...for any store.

    The slogan always cracks me up..."The "L" stands for value!"

    On the DVD it mentions that Lucky Aid is a real store. And it also says how they tape while people shop, so it's like random extras for the scene. As for the name, i guess you have to ask the store owners about that.

    Yardgames, you're right, that slogan cracks me up too. Don't know where the name comes from, but i'm guessing if it was a real store it must have been started by an Irish family what with the clover and all that. I think it's the Irish that came up with the whole lucky four leaf clover thing(?). Reminds me of Lucky Charms too, did you know you can't get those in England any more, my housemate had to order some from the US as a surprise for his girlfriend cos she likes em. Lucky Aide is the scene of some of my favourite MITM moments though, like when Lois and Craig are stacking the Condom shelf and Craig is like, this is "kinda intense", also when the boys have to get Lois a present and they buy her a dirtbike magazine (Reese: "I might wanna read that when you're done") and some candy (something else too that i can't remember).

    The gifts the boys got for Lois were the dirtbike magazine, an eyeglass repair kit and throat lozenges.

    That was funny, since Lois doesn't have eyeglasses.

    Anyway, i did watch the commentary about Lucky Aide being a real store, but I think it's actually called something else. I could be wrong there, but I thought they called it something like "Phil's General Store." The only reason I remember is because they said that store, in real life, has absolutely any thing anyone cna imagine.

    A Rite Aid isn't really like a Walmart. Walmarts are huge and have just about everything: clothes, toys, housewares, electronics etc. Rite Aid is what people sometimes call a "Drug Store" They have a pharmacy inside, and then have mostly drugs and beauty aids and bath products and the like. They have other random stuff too; some crappy toys and maybe an isle of non-perishable food, but that's not really the focus so they don't have a good selection.

    It's funny because i don't get the joke 'the L stands for value'. Can someone explain to me what it means? Thank you!
