About Mr. HoffmeierEdit
Local legend had it, at least according to Jack, that Hoffmeier, the owner of Hoffmeier's Bakery, could smell and/or distinguish the taste one of his pies a mile away, thus, when Chrissy accidentally eats the pie he prepared for a baking contest his school was to compete in, and in which Hoffmeier served as a judge, he opts to withdraw his entry after finding out that Janet, Chrissy, and Mrs. Roper pitched in to replace his entry with of of Hoffmeier's pies. Even after finding out the deception, Dean Travers, who is hungry to win the contest, tries to stop Jack from withdrawing, going into a tug of war with the pie, accidentally hitting Hoffmeier in the face, and setting off a hilarious pie fight!!
