Only Stein Will Tell

The Rapes of Graff.

If you plan on watching ''Veronica Mars'' tonight, that's the name of the ep you'll see. Of course, it's a shout-out to John Steinbeck. I doubt that VM talks about The Great Depression, but I wonder if someone will suffer from great depression?

Since it's a day before Sweet Thursday, that means it's time for an ep list. What other series honored Steinbeck's 1939 book, The Grapes of Wrath?
  • The Shapes of Wrath (''Hey Landlord,'' 10/16/1966)
  • The Apes of Wrath (''Get Smart,'' 11/28/1969)
  • The Dates of Wrath (''Julia,'' 1/13/1970)
  • Dates of Wrath (''Three's Company,'' 12/8/1981)
  • The Grapes of Generosity (''Fraggle Rock,'' 1/21/1985)
  • The Slugs of Wrath (''Alf: The Animated Series,'' 12/10/1988)
  • The Crepes of Wrath (''The Simpsons,'' 4/15/1990)
  • The Tapes of Wrath (''Capital News,'' 4/30/1990)

  • Gripes of Wrath (''Duckman,'' 3/19/1994)
  • The Apes of Wrath (''Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys,'' 2/1/1997)
  • Grapefruits of Wrath (''Daddio,'' 3/23/2000)
