In this episode, sponsored by Unicorn Drops, Ethan opens up the show with a short "Carolina in the Morning." He then introduces the episode's theme: Madame Butterfly (you know, the opera by Puccini). Then he plays a jazzy "Cho-Cho San" which is a fox-trot based on Madame Butterfly themes. Opera singer Melinda Whittington drops in for "Poor Butterfly" and its not-so-feminist sequel, "Poor Little Butterfly is a Fly Girl Now."
