Eisenhower Bust -
A small bronze bust of former US President
Dwight D. Eisenhower seen on Episode 18:
"Mission: Implausible" (04/02/02) on the
situation comedy DHARMA & GREG/ABC/1997-2002.
When Greg Montgomery (Thomas Gibson) went to law
school, up and coming lawyers played a prank on
each other by surreptitiously planting a bust of
Eisenhower in a person's residence.
Greg was considered a champion of the game at
the time. To nullify the delivery of the bust,
the receiver had 23 hours to return the bust to
To prove the original prankster had been "Eisenhowered"
back, it was necessary to take a photograph of
him holding the bust in the nude in front of the
Jamaican flag. A difficult feat to be sure.
Years later, a law school alumnus planted a bust
of Eisenhower in Greg's refrigerator while
visiting San Francisco.
At first, Greg was dejected because he was
getting too old for such things, but with the
help from his wife, Dharma (Jenna Elfman) and
their friends (who devised a Mission Impossible
like intervention) Greg manages to return the
bust and get his naked snap shot.
Happy that he had won back his dignity, Greg
returned home only to find he had been "Eisenhowered"
