The customer is always hungrier...than they think they are.

Since I don't want to leave The Jar totally unattended while I deal with familial issues, I submit for your approval this sketch from the very short-lived but very influential The Ben Stiller Show, which according to its YouTube counter, has been seen far too few times. This is from 1992, and it's wonderful how Stiller nailed that cheap one-set look that was emblematic of Tales from the Darkside and Monsters. (And that's Dave Cross with a last-minute cameo.) You may never eat in a family-themed restaurant again...
