Woman at Party: [coming up to Louis during party] Do you have any Excedrin or extra-strength Tylenol?
Louis: [opening cabinet] Gee, I think all I got is acetylsalicylic acid, generic. See, I can get six hundred tablets of that for the same price as three hundred of a name brand. That makes good financial sense, good advice…
@yakkoTDI age difference I guess? I was too young to catch that when Ghostbusters came out, but just the right age for The Tick… I’ll forever associate acetylsalicylic acid with Arthur and the Tick going to a pharmacy and asking for a dinosaur sized dose.

that episode has always been the reason I know that asprin is acetylsalicylic acid
