If you were to purchase one of Rand Peltzer's inventions, you better hang onto the receipt. We'll let Mom explain why:
MOM: Dad's machines, they work so well the first couple of weeks, then…
She's too nice to say that not only do they not work, but they cause more trouble than you'd have if you'd never bought it in the first place. Hmm, no wonder Rand is drawn to Gizmo. You could say the same thing about mogwai.
But even a broken clock is right twice a day. And Rand's inventions come in handy when Mom finds herself outnumbered 3-1 in her kitchen. That huge blender she shoves one of the gremlins into is one of Rand's inventions. You know Lynn is thanking her lucky stars that this time, when she really needed it, it worked.
